Keeping up with American sports in Israel – a quick guide - The Jerusalem Post

Moving abroad can feel like you have to leave some of your favorite hobbies and pastimes behind you when that isn’t the case. Find out how you can keep up with American sports in Israel.
If you have moved to Israel but are concerned about how you are going to keep up with some of your favorite sports, you need not worry. Our modern, inter-connected world makes it easier than ever to keep up with some of the latest sports news from back home. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do to keep yourself in the loop.
Find Out What You Can Stream
The first step should always be to work out the games that you are able to stream. The time difference between Israel and your former home might mean that you want to stream games through catch-up rather than watch them live. This does mean that you might be able to take advantage of some of the official streaming platforms rather than subscribe to a general sports broadcaster.
For example, those who want to keep up with the NFL should look into picking up an NFL Game pass. Not only will this allow you to stream games live if there is one you don’t want to miss, but will also allow you to catch up and watch older games too.
Find Trustworthy Sources
When trying to keep up with some of the news swirling around your favorite teams, it can be difficult at times to separate the facts from the mere rumors. If there is a big match coming up, there will always be speculation running rampant.
Finding trustworthy sources such as the Sidelines sport prediction website will help to give you a clearer indication of what you could expect from the game. Try to find a collection of trustworthy sources that you are happy to turn to, and that you will always trust leads from. This way, you’ll be able to keep up to date with the news you need from the people you trust.
Get in Touch with the Expat Communities
Regardless of where you have moved to within Israel, you will hopefully have an expat community that you can make contact with. Not only is this a great way for you to quickly make new friends with a similar background to you, but it will also give you some great connections that you can pull on to keep up with your favorite sports.
A group of you could decide to get together to watch a game, or you could even decide to organize a little local amateur league. Getting in touch with other like-minded fans in the expat community is one of the fastest ways for you to be able to keep up with what is happening in sport back home – and you will be in great company while doing so!
Living in the 21st century means that we have access to our favorite sports no matter where we might be. If you feel like you are missing out on the start of the NBA season or your other top sports, it might be easier than you think to keep up with your favorites as they play out back home. Take a look at some of the options open to you online now!
