The Friends of the Israeli Football League (FIFL)

What we do at the FIFL

The Friends of the IFL (FIFL) was founded in 2015 by Jewish and Christian friends who love Israel and are passionate about football.

Our mission is to Build Community in the Holy Land through Football. 

Bringing together young men or women on a football team gives them tools and values for the rest of their lives.
Jews, Christians and Muslims, religious, secular and ultra-Orthodox, native Israelis, and new immigrants all become one working and striving, as a team, for victory.

How can I HELP?

Our coaching mission enables experienced football coaches to connect to a specific Israeli team and act as that team’s advisor and mentor coach. Our coaches also return to the U.S. as ambassadors for Israeli football.

Football equipment is not available commercially in Israel and we help facilitate new and used equipment donations, and ship them to Israel.

Running football leagues for thousands of kids, teenagers and adults is a worthy but costly endeavor. We aim to support the ongoing operations and constant growth of the sport that we love in the land that we love.
