Projected snow forces postponement of cup final

The State Cup final between Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Tel Aviv was postponed from Thursday to Sunday by the Israel Basketball Association on Tuesday due to the forecast of stormy and snowy weather in Jerusalem.

Following Monday’s semifinals, the IBA insisted that the final will go ahead as planned on Thursday. However, after reassessing the situation on Tuesday it was decided to reschedule the final.

“Due to the weather forecast predicting snow on Thursday and in order to prevent a situation in which the game would have to be called off or that the fans will be unable to make it to the arena safely, the IBA has decided to postpone the game to Sunday,” an IBA press release read.
