Our firm, ULTRAS MACCABI, was established in 1996 after the former club owner Eylon Herztikovics, aka Lony, has decided to fire the team coach, Dror Kashtan, who was not only the most decorated football coach in the country, but most importantly the one who led the team that season to one of the best seasons in years, winning the championship and the cup altogether, a season to be remembered for decades.


This was the end of an era, not only in Israel but in the whole world, a change that values only money and fame, opposing to the spirit of the team and fans, honour and passion, which we cherish to this day.
The establishers, who were already hardcore Maccabi fans, saw ahead of all others, knowing that a man who only values money and fame would only bring disaster and shame on the club. Unfortunately, at some point they were right. Few but strong, dedicated and committed to their beliefs they looked elsewhere in the continent at the birth place of the ultras world in Italy. Being also hardcore Juventus fans they adopted the day to day format of Italian ultras group Fighters and set a code of clear rules. As time went by it was known, the first ultras group in Israel was alive and kicking.
Along the 12 last year they experienced and participated in every kind of protests possible opposing the team’s weak management led by Lony, and meanwhile supporting the team. Maccabi fans showed them not only respect but also joint the firm, some as members while others preferred helping and being present when needed. By the year 2000 the firm all ready enjoyed tens of enthusiastic members of all ages from 13 to 50 spread all over the country and from completely different backgrounds, all united under one name Ultras Maccabi Tel Aviv 1996.


Numerous events have left memories where the group took part in and can be told about, but one has probably influenced the group believes´ and left a mark on each of its members - that would be the Champions League two leg against Juventus, where the firm constructed a full brotherhood with notorious Black and White Fighters Gruppo Storico 1977, especially with the hardcore of this famous ultra group led by the Turin born brothers Umberto and Claudio.

We object the involvement of politics in modern football.
