Maccabi Haifa will participate in a four-team NBA exhibition tour in North America this summer, continuing the tradition of recent seasons.

Haifa will face the Washington Wizards on October 15, the Portland Trail Blazers on October 17, the Sacramento Kings and Omri Casspi on October 18 and the Toronto Raptors on October 22.

Haifa’s trip to the United States will mark the fourth time in five years the team will travel to North America to play against NBA competition. In three trips to the United States, Maccabi Haifa has faced six NBA opponents (New Jersey Nets, Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies). At the conclusion of the upcoming tour, Haifa will rank second all-time among international basketball teams in games played (10) against NBA opponents.

“Maccabi Haifa is proud to continue our tradition of playing against NBA opponents, as our fan base in North America is one of the largest among all international basketball teams,” said Haifa owner Jeff Rosen.

The team will hold charity basketball clinics for children in each city during the NBA preseason tour. Haifa’s charity program, “Haifa Hoops for Kids”, a joint initiative between Maccabi Haifa and the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest New Jersey, has hosted over 20,000 underprivileged and special needs children in Israel at the team’s home games.
