Security forces allow more fans for Chad match

Egyptian National Team - EFA - Cup

The Ministry of Interior has agreed to increase the fans’ attendance from 22,000 to 25,000 for the Chad match.

The national team will face Chad in the second round of 2018 World Cup qualification. The match is set to be held in Alexandria’s Burj Al Arab Stadium on the 17th of November and fan attendance has been allowed by the security forces.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) have previously requested that the Ministry of Interior try and allow as many fans as possible for the home match.

Egypt will first travel away to face Chad on the 14th of November before facing them at home in the return match.

The EFA have announced on Friday that over 20,000 fans will attend the Egypt-Chad second-leg World Cup qualifier. However, in a meeting with a representative from the Ministry of Interior on Wednesday, the EFA’s demand to increase the agreed upon number of fans to 25 thousand has been approved.
