The Soviet Union has approved the sale off 400 package tours to Israeli fans who want to watch the Tel Aviv Maccabi basketball team play the CSKA Red Army team in Moscow Jan. 12.

The tours, costing between $1,200 and $1,550, include entry visa, air fare, lodgings, sightseeing and admission to the games.

The Soviet hoopsters will play a rematch in Tel Aviv next March.
