The club management of Wadi Degla, parent club of (both owned by Maged Samy), decided to include a touching gesture for the victims of Port Said tragedy with “74 to Paradise” written in Arabic on the front of the jerseys. The number 74 refers to the number of Ahly fans who lost their lives in the Port Said stadium last February after a match between Al Ahly and Al Masry.

Domestic football has been halted in Egypt since the tragic events.

The kick-off for the 2012-2013 season has been once again been postponed following an official statement from EFA this week.

A board member said on Sunday that a two-week delay is inevitable.

The decision comes amid pressure from Ultras Ahlawy, who refuse to allow domestic football to return until justice is served for the martyrs of Port Said.

On behalf of King Fut, I would like to once again extend our sincere condolences to the families, friends and all those affected by the Port Said tragedy.

Their lives are gone but never forgotten.
