Season & Game Times: Known for its black and yellow uniforms, Beitar Yerushalayim is Jerusalem's main soccer team. The crowds at the games are known to be wild and there is alot of smoking at the games. It is not the best atmosphere for kids although they did just open a Father/Son section which is supposed to be "tamer". It is also pretty special to hear the crowds sing "Anachnu Maaminim" when Beitar scores a goal. If you have gone to a game then list a comment here to let us know what you thought. Game times are announced on the website a few days before the game.
