Finally the Egyptian League is back Today

The league had been suspended since 8 February when 20 Zamalek fans died at a match, leaving many clubs facing a financial meltdown.

Canceling Egypt’s Premier League for the third time in four seasons would have been hard to handle for the country’s desperate clubs, who breathed a sigh of relief after they were given the go-ahead to resume the competition despite some tough conditions.

The ill-fated league kick-starts on Monday after a seven-week hiatus in the wake of another football disaster which left 20 Zamalek fans dead at Cairo’s army-owned Air Defence Stadium on 8 February.

The supporters died in a stampede after being tear-gassed by security forces, who sought to prevent them from attending a game against ENPPI on the grounds that they did not have tickets.
