Beitar Jerusalem F.C. is the most popular and controversial football team in Israel, theonly club in the Premier League never to sign an Arab player. Mid-way through the2012-13 season, a secretive transfer deal by the owner, Russian-Israeli oligarch ArcadiGaydamak, brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the mostracist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiralling out of control. One seasonin a life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics, moneyand a window into how racism is destroying a team and society from within.
