Cabinet of Ministers: Egyptian Premier League returns after 40-day mourning
The Cabinet of Ministers gave the green light to the Egyptian Football Association to recommence the Egyptian Premier League following a mourning period of 40 days.
The Cabinet decided to form a committee that includes representatives of the Ministry of Interior, the Egyptian Football Association and the Ministry of Youth and Sports to coordinate the return of the league after the end of the 40-day mourning period, according to Ahram‘s Arabic website.
Mahmoud El-Shamy, Egyptian FA media spokesman, previously announced that the league would be returning on the 19th of February.
The spokesman also said that inactivity will hurt a huge sector that operates in football, which has a value of investments of nearly five billion pounds, and that some clubs have budgets of nearly 300 million pounds.
The Egyptian Premier league is currently halted indefinitely due to the Air Defence Stadium tragedy which saw the death of at least 22 Zamalek fans.
