The 1928 People's Cup (Hebrew: גביע העם‎, Gvia HaAm) was the first season of Israeli Football Association's nationwide football cup competition. Matches began on 7 April 1928 and the final was played on 26 May 1928.

Hapoel Allenby Tel Aviv won the cup, beating Maccabi Hasmonean Jerusalem 2–0 in the final. However, the Jerusalem club appealed to the F.A., claiming that a Hapoel player, Moshe Meir wasn't registered.[1][2] The appeal was accepted and the teams were ordered to share the cup.[3][4]

Background[edit]

Starting in 1922, unofficial cup competitions were held in Mandatory Palestine on an annual, national basis under the sponsorship of Britain's military garrison there, at start involving British teams only, but in subsequent years, Arab and Jewish teams as well. As these cups pre-date the existence of a national football association, they are not considered official by the Israel Football Association.

During this time there was also a national cup organised by the Maccabi organisation, the Magen Shimshon, but this only included Maccabi clubs.[5]
