executive director Tharwat Sweilam has announced that spectators will not be returning to the stands in the coming period.

Despite announcing earlier that fans would be allowed back into stadiums for matches starting from the second round of fixtures, the EFA has reversed its decision after discussions with the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Interior.

However, officials from both ministries have agreed to the hosting of Premier League matches at the Cairo International Stadium, as well as the 30 June [Air Defence] stadium, where 22 Zamalek fans lost their lives last year.
