Who we are
The Sports Organization for Olim and Diaspora
Inter Aliyah Football Club was created to facilitate the integration of Olim into israeli society through sports and to serve as a continuous bond between the diaspora community and the State of Israel. Our club already provides a unified identity to hundreds of Olim residing in Israel.
Aliyah Club is envisioned to give an opportunity to those athletes in the diaspora that would like to come to Israel and play professional sports. Currently our project has four football teams actively playing, including the Israeli fifth division of soccser (Liga Guimmel) in the Tel Aviv region.
Our network of olim athletes and sportsmanship is rapidly growing and more is to come.
We shall serve as a home for incoming Olim to Israel, where they will be able to adapt to the culture, learn the language, achieve education and further develop as professional athletes.
We will develop strong and continuous relationships and support with the diaspora communities in order to grow Aliyah Club's infrastructure.
