The Egyptian Football Association ‘EFA’ Competitions Committee have announced the date for the Cairo derby between Al Ahly and Zamalek in the Egyptian Premier League.

The match will be held on July 17 one day before the league ends as confirmed by Competitions Committee head Amer Hussein.

Al Ahly are getting closer to winning the title as they are leading the league with 74 points, 11 points away from second-place Misr ElMaqassa. On the other side, Zamalek is third with 51 points and officially lost the title race.

“The league will end on July 18, one day after the Cairo derby,” Hussein said in radio comments. “The match is expected to be played at El-Salam stadium unless security officials decide to move it to another stadium.” Hussein assured also that all league clubs will only play two matches in the holy month of Ramadan.

The Red Devils will be playing against Sharkia on Wednesday in the 29th fixture of the EPL while the Whites will face Wadi Degla on Thursday.
