LUG Sports, the leading provider in “Keeping the Dream Alive” for college and university students across North America, and the Israel Elite Hockey League (IEHL) today announced a partnership that will give hockey players the opportunity to travel to Israel and play in a competitive/semi-pro level league for their summer season.
The partnership between LUG and the IEHL will provide LUG hockey players with an incredible opportunity to experience the sport at a high level while also exploring the rich culture and history of the country. The month-long season will include 3-4 games a week, 10 games regular season in IEHL and 4 tours around Israel with interesting excursions and experiences.
"We are very excited to welcome these talented young players from LUG Sports to Israel and the IEHL," said Tal Avery & Marc Brunengraber, Commissioner of the Israel Elite Hockey League. "This partnership is a great opportunity to expand the IEHL network amongst college aged hockey players in North America. Each season, the league gets even stronger and that’s due in large part to the diverse backgrounds and origins of our players."
The Israel Elite Hockey League is the premier hockey league in Israel and is home to many top tier players, looking for a competitive league to stay in shape during the offseason. This partnership with LUG Sports will give young hockey players the chance to play alongside these elite players and receive a unique hockey related experience.
"We are thrilled to partner with the Israel Elite Hockey League to offer LUG hockey players this unique opportunity," said Ray Abramson and Ethan Wright, Presidents of LUG Sports.
