The deal between Hapoel Katamon and Hapoel Jerusalem has fallen through. Katamon, a fan-owned soccer club which was created by disgruntled supporters of Hapoel Jerusalem who did not believe owners had the club's interests at heart, played in the fourth division Liga Alef for the last two seasons but ran into financial trouble in recent months. It had attempted to rejoin with Hapoel Jerusalem but the failure of to come to an agreement has led to the abandonment of the club and the decision to start a new team named Hapoel Katamon Jerusalem to play in Liga Gimel next season.
