No room to delay Egyptian Premier League games – EFA's board member
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 25 - 07 - 2020

There is no room to postpone any game in the Egyptian Premier League, due to restart 6 August after a five-month suspension due to the coronavirus, Egyptian Football Association (EFA) board member Mohamed Fadl said on Thursday.
EFA released Wednesday the fixture list for August. "We intended to announce the full schedule of the league, but we started with the current schedule and will release the date of the remaining matches after determining the date of Confederation of African Football (CAF) games," Fadl told a television programme.
"There is no time to postpone any game for even an hour, and we hope all games will be played as scheduled," he added.
On Tuesday, 18 coronavirus cases were detected at Egyptian Premier League club El-Entag El-Harby after they held a training camp in the Red Sea city of Sharm El-Sheikh.
"Our role in EFA is to resolve the problem and we hope they (the 18 cases) all will recover soon as there is no intention to postpone games," Fadl said.
A rescheduled match between Zamalek and Masry will mark the league's return on 6 August, while the Cairo derby between Ahly and Zamalek will take place at Cairo Stadium 22 August.
Ahly are leading the league table with 49 points from 17 games, while perennial rivals Zamalek lie fourth with 31 points from 16 games.
