Al Nasr have sealed promotion to the after securing a first-place finish in Group B of the second division this season.

The Cairo-based club sealed the promotion with five games to spare after their nearest rivals FC Masr played out a goalless draw with Al Qanah on Friday. They currently top the group with 73 points, while FC Masr are second with 56 points, which means it’s mathematically impossible for FC Masr to catch them.

They join Al Assiouty Sport who secured their spot in the premier league earlier in April. Al Ragaa and Baladeyet El-Mahalla SC from Group C are still competing for the final promotion spot.

It will become Al Nasr’s second season ever in the Egyptian Premier League, as they were promoted to ’s top tier in the 2014-15 season, but were relegated after finishing 18th with 32 points from 38 games.
