Mond Cup[edit]

During a visit to Palestine, Sir Alfred Mond suggested a forming a Jewish unified team to tour The UK. In order to set the squad of the team which will be sent abroad, a competition, named "Mond Cup", in honor of Sir Mond, was organized between the four top Jewish teams, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Tel Aviv, Hapoel Haifa and Maccabi Hasmonean Jerusalem in which The four teams would play each other in a league format, after which the best players would be selected to the team.[2] Eventually, after the competition, due to disagreements between the clubs no team was composed and the tour didn't take place.[3][4] The competition included the first ever competitive Tel Aviv derby match, which was played at Maccabi ground on 24 June 1928 and resulted in a 1–1 draw. The return fixture, played on 21 July 1928 was won 3–1 by Hapoel.
