A new tackle football league is starting in Jerusalem, but guys ready to put on their pads and helmets will be disappointed to hear that this game is for girls only.

Ayelet Wartelsky and Nadia Brenner, both former players in the flag football league for women, decided to start the tackle league in Kraft Stadium a few months back.
