AUSTRALIA MACCABIAH REGISTRATIONS OPENING SOON


As Maccabiah momentum is building down under, the Organising Commiitte in Israel is in full swing.  Below are a few snippets from the Maccabiah Organising Committee (MOC).

"We are very excited to share that there will be close to 9,000 athletes representing over 75 delegations in 40+ different sports at the next Maccabiah. The Maccabiah Organising Committee, Government of Israel, the various Municipalities, other individuals and organizations are preparing all aspects of the Maccabiah in a very professional level from sports to accommodations, transportation to safety and security, communications and public relations as well as the various ceremonies and cultural events" Amir Peled, Chairman, Maccabiah 2017

Uri Menachem, Headquarters Director, Maccabiah 2017, noted that "The 20th Maccabiah is just 18-months from now and preparations are underway.  The organizing committee and management team are in place and we are moving forward at full speed and promise to make the 20th Maccabiah an unforgettable experience. We have taken account all the feedback that we received from the previous Maccabiah and have already made improvements with our selection of sport facilities, location of accommodations and reduced the total travel time it will take to get from the hotel to the sport facilities.  In addition we have added three new sports; Street Ball, Lacrosse, and Orienteering."
