1969–70 Liga Bet

The 1969–70 Liga Bet season saw Hapoel Nahariya, Hapoel Zikhron Ya'akov, and Hapoel Yehud win their regional divisions and promoted to Liga Alef. Hapoel Beit Shemesh, which placed third in South Division B was also promoted, as the top two clubs, Hapoel Ramla and Hapoel Ashdod were involved in match-fixing scandal, and as a result, both clubs were disqualified by the IFA.[1]
