In a press conference, the sports minister said that football’s training sessions would be resumed on June 20, according to precautionary and preventive measures.
He also assured that the Egyptian Football Association and all the clubs are responsible for applying all precautionary and measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
“The preparation period to restart the season once again could need three weeks like what happened in England. It also can take less than three weeks as it happened in the other countries, so we have to confirm that the cases are not about football only, ” Sobhi said.
“We drew up a detailed guideline suggesting the way in which the sports activities would be resumed, according to precautionary and preventive measures,” the Sports Minister added.
