Israel and 11 other countries will be utilizing the Invitational (dubbed “E-BOX”), which is held from April 19-22, as training camps. The event features each team in one full 60-minute (4×15) stoppage time, FIL regulation match per day, to best replicate the experience in participating in a grueling World or European Championship.
