El-Gouna to file FIFA complaint against EFA
El-Gouna’s board has decided to file an official complaint to FIFA against the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) after they refused to appoint foreign referees for their next game in the Egyptian Premier League.
El-Gouna are set to play against Ittihad El-Shorta on Wednesday in the 37th round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The club decided to attach with the complaint that would be sent to FIFA an official acceptance from the EFA to appoint foreign referees and a receipt of USD 30,000 as expenses for the referees.
The referees committee had announced Sunday on the EFA website their approval to El-Gouna’s request before the EFA board declared on Monday that they wouldn’t appoint foreign referees except for Al Ahly and Zamalek game.
The coastal club had earlier threatened to officially withdraw from the league, saying they wouldn’t play their game against El-Shorta unless a foreign referee led it.
El-Gouna currently sit in the 14th place with 45 points, two points away from the relegation zone. The club find their request for foreign referees justified, as the game would play an important role in deciding the team’s future in the league.
