As part of the preparations for the upcoming season, the Maccabi Tel Aviv players are also being updated on the rules of the game. On Wednesday, international referee Roie Reinstreiber spent the afternoon hours speaking to the club and professional staff about new rules that have gone into effect as of June 1.

Among the changes that were presented to the Maccabi squad and staff was a revision of the constitution aimed at creating greater uniformity with respect to whistles on hand balls, an update stating that in the event of a substitute, the player being substituted off of the pitch needs to exit at the nearest point and not in the middle as well as an attacking player needs to be at least one meter away from a “wall” set up by the opponent.
