‘I want to thank the MKs for showing that there is no Right or Left in sports,’ said Regev. ‘Together with my friends we will work to promote women’s sport in Israel.’ The UEFA European Women’s U-19 Championship final tournament will begin on July 15 and end 12 days later.

The tournament also acts as the UEFA qualifier for the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea, with the four semifinalists to qualify.

Seven teams from a record-equaling field of 48 qualified joined hosts Israel, with Group A to include the hosts, Sweden, France and Denmark.

England, Germany, Spain and Norway will play in Group B.

The matches will take place in Lod, Ramle, Rishon Lezion and Netanya.
