Al Ahly – Al Masry postponed indefinitely by EFA
Earlier today, the Egyptian Football Association decided to postpone Al Ahly’s match against Al Masry indefinitely, following a request from the Ministry of Interior.
The match was originally scheduled to take place on the 20th of December at Gouna Stadium.
The Ministry of Interior submitted a request to postpone the encounter, seeing as the final verdict in the Port Said tragedy case is to be announced on the same day.
The EFA has instead decided that Al Ahly will play their delayed game against Wadi Degla next weekend.
It must be noted that death sentences have already been handed out to 21 of the defendants in the Port Said football massacre.
Former Port Said director of security Essam El-Din Samak was also sentenced to 15 years in high security prison alongside nine other defendants. Furthermore, five defendants were sentenced to life in prison, six were sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment, two defendants were sentenced to five years, and one defendant was sentenced to a year in prison.
Al Ahly sit in 12th place in the Egyptian Premier League overall standings, 3 points and 5 positions below Al Masry, but have five games in hand following their 1-3 win against Smouha earlier today.
