Youth and sports Minister untied the knot. All postponed

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) released a statement in which they announced that all Egyptian Premier League games will be postponed until the end of the U-23 AFCON in November.

The EFA has had several scheduling issues over the past week, especially regarding the clash between Al Ahly and Zamalek in the Cairo Derby who were supposed to face each other last Saturday October 19th. However just days before the match  the EFA announced that the game had to be postponed, per the request of  Egypt’s security officials.

The EFA then rescheduled Zamalek’s fifth-round game against Arab Contractors, bringing forward the match to be played on Saturday, in place of the postponed Cairo derby.

The decision angered Al Ahly officials as they refused to reschedule the game, threatening  not to play any league matches before they meet Zamalek first.

Following the Cairo Derby Al-Ahly were set to visit El-Gouna in game-week five but refused to travel as a form of protest to the current situation.

Then the Egyptian Minister of Youth and Sports Ashraf Sobhy met with Al Ahly president Mahmoud El-Khatib on Monday to try find a satisfying solution for all parties but   reached no success with changing their decision not to  play any game until facing Zamalek.

Yesterday the EFA announced that all upcoming league games would be played until the U-23 AFCON ends on November 22 and that the Cairo Derby will be played on the final game-day of the first-leg.
