Liga Leumit is a professional football league based in Israel. Established in 1928, it is the second tier of the Israeli Football League system, sitting below the Israeli Premier League. The league was initially the country's top division until 1999 when the Premier League was created.

The league's name, "Leumit," translates to "National" in English, reflecting its status as a national competition. The league has a rich history and has been the launching pad for many of Israel's most successful football players.

Liga Leumit is composed of 16 teams that compete in a regular season running from August to May. Each team plays the other teams twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 30 matches each. The top two teams at the end of the season are promoted to the Premier League, while the bottom two are relegated to Liga Alef, the third tier of Israeli football.

The league has seen many clubs rise to prominence over the years. Hapoel Tel Aviv, Maccabi Haifa, and Beitar Jerusalem are among the most successful clubs in the league's history, each having won multiple championships.

Liga Leumit has not only been a platform for domestic talent but has also attracted players from around the world. The league's competitive nature and high level of play have made it a popular destination for players looking to further their careers.

The league has also been instrumental in the development of Israeli football. It has helped to raise the standard of play in the country and has contributed to the national team's successes on the international stage.

Despite being the second tier, Liga Leumit maintains a strong following. Fans are passionate and games are often highly competitive, making for an exciting football experience. The league continues to play a vital role in the Israeli football landscape, nurturing talent and providing high-quality football for its dedicated fan base.

In conclusion, Liga Leumit is more than just a football league; it is a cornerstone of Israeli football. Its history, its contribution to the development of players, and its role in the national football scene make it an integral part of the country's sporting culture.
