1949–50 Liga Meuhedet

  (Redirected from Liga Meuhedet 1949-50)

Liga Meuhedet (Hebrew: ליגה מיוחדת‎, lit. Special League) was a temporary second division of Israeli football in the 1949–50 season, the first after Israeli independence. It consisted of five regional division; North, Samaria, Sharon, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and South. There was no promotion or relegation.

There was no league football during the 1950–51 season, and when it resumed in 1951–52, Liga Bet returned as the second tier with the same composition as the aborted 1947–48 Liga Bet, with the top teams from Samaria, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem-South divisions replacing inactive teams.
