Coca Cola League One side Oldham Athletic are set to embark on a pre-season tour of Israel July next year.
Managing Director and co-owner Simon Corney, who suggested the idea to the club's manager John Sheridan, is adamant to show the team that Israel is a safe country but, most importantly, a nation that remains "in love" with its football.
The side will begin a week's tour of the country on July 24. They will come up against Israeli Premiere League's Maccabi Haifa, Maccabi Tel Aviv and one other side yet to be confirmed.
