Maccabi Tel Aviv 2014/15 home - Sheran Yeini #21 (Israel State Cup Final)

Extremely rare match issued Maccabi Tel Aviv 2014/15 home shirt, issued to team captain, Israeli defender/midfielder Sheran Yeini #21 for the Israel State Cup final match against Hapoel Be'er Sheva on May 20, 2015 at Sammy Ofer Stadium in Haifa. Yeini did not take part in the match as Maccabi Tel Aviv ran out comfortable 6-2 winners, celebrating a famous domestic treble, having already won the Israeli League and Israeli League Cup this season. The shirt is signed by the entire Maccabi Tel Aviv squad.

The shirt features unique match details below the team crest, printed specially for this final match. This is the first time that an Israeli club has had match details printed on a match shirt, making this shirt extremely rare. In quite amateur fashion, the name of the stadium was misspelled on the match details, and as there was not enough time to make new shirts with the correct spelling before the match, yellow stickers with the correct spelling were placed over the misspelled stadium name.

Interestingly, Maccabi Tel Aviv also made it to the State Cup final in the following two seasons as well (2015/16 and 2016/17), but did not play with match details in the 2016 final, and then again played with match details in the 2017 final. Starting from the 2019 final, all teams now play with special match details printed on the shirts.
