Opening Day for the IAB Premier League is Sunday, as Tel Aviv takes on Ra’anana at Baptist Village, host of all league games this season. League champion Modi’in will begin its title defense against Jerusalem on Tuesday, while Tel Aviv and Ra’anana have a rematch next Thursday. After completing a three-week spring training schedule, the season will consist of about 20 games, all played at night except for some day games during Hol Hamo'ed, the intermediate days of Pesach, according to the league.
