The Swiss Super League fixtures for the 2016/17 have been announced as Egypt international Omar Gaber is set to kick off his first season with FC Basel.

Gaber joined the Swiss side from Cairo giants Zamalek on a four-year deal in May to become the fourth Egyptian to join the team in the last four years after Ahmed Hamoudi, Mohamed Elneny and Mohamed Salah.

The opening weekend sees reigning champions FC Basel host FC Sion, who finished fifth last season, at St. Jakob-Park on July 24.

It’s worth noting that Gaber’s side are the defending champions after winning the league last season for the seventh time in a row.
