About the IFA CEO

Niv Goldstein - 35 years old, a lawyer specializing in insolvency.

"Between the years 2016-2023 I served as the CEO of the Maccabi Netanya football club. As part of my role, I led the club together with loyal partners from a situation of insolvency to financial profitability and professional achievements on the grass in the local arena and even to historic qualification for the European enterprises.

In my opinion, the Israel Football Association is ripe to lead and carry out a significant and profound upgrade in the industry and thereby ensure economic, professional and image prosperity. The association must support and professionally promote the teams, coaches, players, referees and national teams in a significant way. In addition, the improvement of service consciousness must be engraved on the flag of the association and I am convinced that our excellent employees always strive for the highest levels.

I have always believed in the power of the game of football to contribute to the individual, society and the country in so many ways and there is no better opportunity than the current one that has been given to me, to do much more in order to reach my potential. I know the football industry in all its aspects and the decisive role of the association in its management, development and promotion. We will strengthen the existing good and improve what needs repair. Together with the management of the association and all our wonderful partners, we will achieve the victories we deserve".
