OFFICIAL: EFA announce 2014/2015 Egyptian Premier League fixtures
The Egyptian Football Federation have announced that the new Egyptian Premier League season will start on the 15th of September, one day after the Super Cup.
The 2014/2015 season will see a return to the old format since the Port Said disaster in 2012, thus abandoning the two group format which was implemented in the past two seasons.
However, fans will still not be allowed to attend the league games due to a decision by the Ministry of Interior.
The opening gameweek will see the absence of Al Ahly and Zamalek due to their Egypt Super Cup game which is to be held on the 14th of September, whilst Ismaily kick-off their campaign in the derby against Al-Masry.
Gamweek One games:
Al Ahly vs. Ittihad El-Shorta- delayed
Zamalek vs. ENPPI- delayed
Al Masry vs. Ismaily

Haras El-Hodood vs. Masr El-Maqassa
