Al Masry train on Port Said Stadium for first time since 2012 massacre
Al Masry officially announced the return of the team to Port Said Stadium for the first time since the stadium was closed back in 2012 following the massacre that resulted in the deaths of 72 Al Ahly fans.
The club’s president Samir Halabia announced earlier the Port Said governor’s decision to transfer the ownership of Port Said Stadium back to the club, which enables Al Masry to transfer their training sessions and matches back to their home stadium.
Fans and club board will attend the team’s first training session in the stadium on Wednesday as announced on the club’s official Facebook page. “I would like to thank the Minister of Interior and Port Said’s governor for approving the decision to return to our stadium,” said Halabia.
The stadium has been under the government’s control since 2012, and Halabia claimed in a press conference that the stadium will be under reconstruction for three months.
Al Masry will clash with ENPPI on Sunday in the 24th round of the Egyptian Premier League.
