The 1938 Liga Gimel season was the third tier league of the Palestine League organized by the EIFA.

Liga Gimel
Season1938
1940

Ten teams played in the South division.[1] As the Arab revolt intensified in fall 1938 and with the High commissioner issuing restrictive orders on travel throughout Palestine,[2] the EIFA created a two-tiered league for the Tel Aviv region, with matches played in the league counting towards the national league.[3] The Tel Aviv League was completed on 14 January 1939[4] and in February 1939 a new league season began, with teams playing in regionalized divisions instead a national league.[5]

North division edit

A north division was organized by the North League Committee, and matches in the division were due to start on 19 March 1938,[6] However, it seems that matches in this division didn't start at all.
