Israel national team will be divided into two teams:

In addition to men’s lacrosse games a women’s lacrosse match is also planned. The Polish Women’s National Team will face a team from Israel. It is possible that a Latvian Women’s team will also participate as well but to the present day this has not been confirmed officially by the Latvian federation.
