The Egyptian Football Association announced Czech referee Pavel Královec will officiate the Egyptian Super Cup between Al Ahly and Zamalek in Abu Dhabi. 

The EFA had previously announced that German referee Felix Brych would officiate the game but then went back on their decision due to Brych’s high financial demands. The German asked the EFA to secure his flight to Abu Dhabi, but they refused due to how expensive the airline ticket is.

The referee committee had three options to replace Brych, but they settled on Královec, according to a statement that they released on their official Facebook page.

The Cairo giants Al Ahly and Zamalek are set to challenge for the Egyptian Super Cup at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi next Friday, February the 10th.
