Ismaily issue strong complaint due to unaired friendlies

Posted on November 29, 2015


Ismaily spokesman Alaa Wahed has criticised TV channels as they “don’t air the club’s friendly games as they do with .”

The Dervishes are currently holding a camp in Tunisia, where they drew 1-1 with Tunis giants Club African; ’s men won’t stop there as they are scheduled to play a second friendly against CA’s rivals Espérance Tunis on Monday.

Wahed took to his facebook account to express his anger at the fact that Ismaily’s game against Esperance, like the once against CA, will not be aired – comparing the matter with Al Ahly – who are currently holding a camp in Dubai.

“It’s an obligation for national television to air Ismaily’s friendlies,” he said. “Private TV channels refuse to air our friendlies in the Tunisia camp despite being strong ones – instead showing Al Ahly’s friendly against Hatta, a second division team in UAE, due to ‘advertising’.”

“As the team’s media adviser, I’ve addressed all the channels to air the games and their only response was that they’ll think about it once I send the broadcast signal.

“The channels want us to pay them in order to air the games!”

Alaa concluded his words by hoping national television take a decision: “Our last hope is national television. There are negotiations with Tunisian television but the Tunisian clubs want a big sum of money in order to air their games. We will keep trying until the very the last moment.”
