Arab Club Championship 2017 Draw | Ahly & Zamalek Groups | VIDEO

Egyptian giants Ahly and Zamalek were handed a favorable draw in the revamped Arab Club Championship on Friday as the tournament springs back to life following a four-year hiatus.

One-time winners Ahly were placed in Group A along with Jordan’s Al-Faisaly, Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey and Al-Wahda of the United Arab Emirates.

Ahly’s Cairo rivals Zamalek, who also lifted the trophy once, were drawn in Group B along with Morocco’s FUS Rabat, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr and Al-Ahed of Lebanon.

Group C was the toughest, featuring Tunisian side Esperance, traditional rivals of Ahly and Zamalek, as well as Saudi giants Al-Hilal, Sudan’s Al-Merreikh and Naft Al-Wasat of Iraq.

Cairo and Alexandria will host the Arab Championship from 21 July to 5 August.

The winners of each of the three groups will advance to the semis along with the best second-placed side.

The lucrative financial rewards include a $2.5 million for the winner, equalling those offered by CAF for its flagship African club competition.

The full draw:

Group A: Ahly (Egypt), Al-Faisaly (Jordan), NA Hussein Dey (Algeria), Al-Wahda (UAE)

Group B: Zamalek (Egypt), FUS Rabat (Morocco), Al-Nassr (Saudi Arabia), Al-Ahed (Lebanon)
