Ultras Devils declare self-dissolution after burning their banner, which is considered a sign of group dissolution in the custom of ultras groups worldwide.

The group issued a statement affirming that the decision was taken in isolation of the ban decreed by the court earlier this week.

The statement returned the cause of the decision to the disaster that happened in 2012, which lead to the death of Ultras Devils’ founder and leader of the organized journey of the group to attend that match. The statement labelled him as “the soul of the group” and stated that after his death “the body was separated from the soul”. A lot of attempts to revive the group succeeded his death that generated no outcome.

The statement also claimed that the self-dissolution decision was taken before the court decreed a law banning all ultras groups in , adding that the ultras groups are not defamed associations, which means that the banning and dissolving decision from the court shall not apply to such groups,  stating that ultras groups have always been treated as criminals since their emergence.

Ultras Devils, who are considered a sister but separate group from Ultras Ahlawy, are mainly located outside the capital – especially in the Delta region and Alexandria – has built a mosque as a charity for the souls of those who lost their lives in Port Said. The mosque was named “The Martyrs” and a dedication was written at the banner at entrance of the mosque to the martyrs of both Al Ahly and Zamalek fans.

Hesham is a young architect who has been a passionate fan of Egyptian and international football since 1994. A big fan of Arsenal and Al Ahly. Loves the game and believes it can be pushed to another level in his home country - Egypt - if well presented.
