Maccabi Tel Aviv fans came to Kiryat Shalom to meet and take pictures with the players during the the club's Open house

The Maccabi Tel Aviv tradition of opening their doors to their most devoted fans continued at Kiryat Shalom this afternoon with the third open house of the 2012/13 season. The timing of the event, immediately after an international break in which Maccabi's players shone, was ideal.  As always, the fans expressed their admiration for all of the players, but were particularly complimentary to those players who, for several days, switched Maccabi Tel Aviv's blue and yellow colours for Israel's blue and white.

An open house like this one gives the players the opportunity to give their full attention to every fan who approaches them, and that was indeed the case this afternoon.  The cameras, iPhones and microphones were at the ready and the players gave their complete co-operation, smiling  and handing out well wishes for all special occasions like birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs and weddings.  The fans wished the players luck in the upcoming game and throughout the season.  Fans made use of the occasion to visit the club's official store, where they were able to purchase matchday jerseys and a variety of other products in their favourite colours.  After the open house ended, the players proceeded with their evening practice and they will continued to train during the week-end, preparing for their intriguing tie on Saturday against HaPoel Acre.
