Gamal Allam: Fans will attend league semi-finals
It is also worth noting that fans have been forbidden from going to league games since the Port Said disaster in early February of 2012.
In an interview with Shabab Wel Reyada radio station, Allam said that he’s adamant that fans will be allowed to attend the Egyptian Premier League semi-finals.
“The Minister is willing to let fans attend games again,” he began. “Fans will be allowed back into the stands as soon as the finals start.
“There will be several meetings with the security forces, the ultra groups, and club representatives in order to ensure that the fans’ return is a successful one.
When asked about the number of spectators that will be allowed to attend, Allam said that the exact number has not been decided yet, while also stating that away fans might not attend.
“We still haven’t decided the exact number of fans that will attend games,” he added. “We also haven’t decided whether the finals will be a single or a double round-robin.
“However, soon all matters will be decided including the decision to allow away fans to attend or not.”
The top two teams of each group qualify to the semi-finals, and the winners will then face-off to determine this year’s Egyptian Premier League champions.
