fans will be able to attend part two of next weeks’ semi-final but supporters section will be closed.  

Zamalek board members and the club’s official spokesman Ahmed Mansour said that Zamalek received the green light to host 15,000 fans at Petrosport Stadium in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final second leg.

Mortada Mansour’s son Ahmed said on Nile Sports that authorities agreed to allow 15,000 Zamalek fans to attend the club’s semi-final second leg next week.

“We received the security forces’ approval that Petrosport Stadium will receive 15,000 Zamalek fans during the second leg,” Mansour said.

The club’s spokesman went on to say that the Ultras White Knights would be welcome to the game but would have to enter the stadium as “regular fans.”

“I am against putting Zamalek fans into different groups and classes. They are not allowed to use any violence, weapons or flares, and we welcome them as we did before during the domestic double celebrations,” he said.

In February, 22 Zamalek fans were killed in the Air Defense Stadium disaster. Since then, fans have not been allowed to attend matches.

The second leg of the tournament is scheduled next Saturday.
