Cairo giants have received an offer to play a friendly match against Spanish side in Cairo next month.

The White Knights received the offer from a marketing company which had previously organised matches between Egyptian and Spanish sides, including the Atlético vs Zamalek friendly tie in 2011 and the against Espanyol and Getafe matches which were held in 2013 and 2015 respectively.

The friendly match is set to be played on the 22nd or 24th of May. Also, it has been suggested that all the ticket sales will go to the Cairo based giants whilst the organising company will pocket revenues generated from the stadium ads and TV rights.

If the friendly to be held it will be the second match for Zamalek against Spanish teams following the clubs friendly against Atlético in 2011. The match turned out to be a disappointing result for the White Knights, with the Madrid based giants running out convincing 4-1 winners. The match was held as a part of Zamalek’s centennial celebrations.
