Zamalek hit with three-point deduction after Cairo derby no show
Published in Ahram Online on 26 - 02 - 2020

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) revealed on Wednesday its sanctions against Zamalek after the club's no show in the Cairo derby on Monday.
"Following the incidents of the Cairo derby, Ahly are considered the game's winner with a result of 2-0," read a statement on the EFA's official website on Wednesday.
"Zamalek were handed a three-point deduction from his final result at the end of the season, and the club is ordered to pay an EGP 200,000 fine," the statement added.
Zamalek are now third on the league table with 31 points, just one point behind second placed Arab Contractors, who played one match more and are 17 points behind leaders Ahly.
The Cairo derby was called-off after the absence of Zamalek players at the Cairo stadium where the derby was scheduled to take place.
Zamalek claimed that the team failed to reach the stadium due to traffic caused by heavy rains in the Egyptian capital on Monday.
The referee whistled the start of the game at 20:30 in the presence of Ahly, who were on the field on time, and waited for 20 minutes, in accordance with game regulations, before the match was called off.
On Sunday, the Zamalek board decided to forfeit the league games in protest against the Egyptian Football Association's (EFA) sanctions imposed following the Super Cup brawl last Thursday.
Zamalek's president Mortada Mansour said the club will no longer compete in the domestic league under the supervision of this interim board.
Several Ahly and Zamalek players and officials were hit with heavy sanctions following a bust-up between the two teams at the end of the game that saw Zamalek claim their fourth Super Cup title following a penalty shootout victory.
