Egyptian League will not be cancelled, Zaher confirms
The Egyptian Premiere League will not be canceled this season, but the return date depends on security and club approval
Published in Ahram Online on 09 - 02 - 2011

The international governing body of football (FIFA) has set two main conditions for the resumption of Egyptian Premiere league activity.
“FIFA set a condition that there must be sufficient security for players and fans before deciding to resume games,” Egyptian Football Association (EFA) president Samir Zaher told CNN on Tuesday.
“They also required that all clubs must state their approval to continue the competition,” added Zaher.
All football activities in Egypt have been stopped by the EFA due to the ongoing protests in the country, but Zaher denied all rumors about canceling the league this season.
“Cancelling the Egyptian league will cost us a lot. The clubs may face disasters as they have spent a lot of money on training camps, sponsorship deals and player transfers,” affirmed Zaher.
As the protests in Egypt have yet to settle, Zaher believes that resuming the Egyptian league may help in getting things back to normal in the country.
“We will hold a meeting with the clubs' officials to agree on resuming the competition and arranging details like match times, location and referees,” he stated.
