EFA: Ismaily, Ittihad of Alexandria to participate in Arab Club Championship
Four Egyptian sides had participated in the tournament’s previous edition in Al Ahly, Zamalek, Ismaily and Ittihad of Alexandria.
However to avoid scheduling issues, the EFA decided to disallow both Zamalek and Al Ahly from participating in the upcoming edition as they will be participating in the CAF Champions League next season. Both of them managed to win the trophy once each, the Reds were the first to lift it back in 1996, followed by the White Knights in 2003.
The draw for the tournament will take place on either July 23 or July 24, with the tournament’s preliminary round set to kick-off on August 20 or August 21.
