Palestine League
Season 1930-31
Matches played 24
Goals scored 132 (5.5 per match)

An attempt was made to organize a Palestine League, with the participation of 11 clubs, both Jewish and British, in the top division and a second division divided into four regional leagues. However, league matches were suspended in November 1930 as British military teams were ordered not to play Jewish teams due to the tensions between the British Mandate government and the Jewish community following the publication of the Passfield white paper.[2] An attempt to revive the league with Jewish clubs only also failed.[3]
