Located in the Tel Aviv District of Jaffa, Bloomfield Stadium was built on the same ground where Basa Stadium once stood. The stadium in Hapoel is named after Leopold Bloomfield to honour his lifelong dedication to the ideals of sport in Israel. Finance for the stadium project came from the Bloomfield family of Montreal. In 2000, Hapoel´s city rivals, Maccabi moved into Bloomfield. The stadium was officially opened on 13 December 1962 with a friendly match between Hapoel and FC Twente.
