Empty Stadium Due to Zamalek’s Failure to Show Up



Empty Stadium

The Ahly and Zamalek conflicts are growing non-stop! Not only was there the fight that broke out last Thursday at the Egyptian Premier League, but also controversial point of views have  been discussed about yesterday’s scandal!

A match was to be played yesterday between both Ahly and Zamalek at precisely 7:30, but due to ‘weather conditions‘, Zamalek missed the match! What? Yes they were the ones to win last match, but yesterday’s incident left people puzzled.

Due to the heavy rain and terrible weather conditions as well as traffic jams , the referee of yesterday’s match postponed the game to 8:30 pm to allow the Zamalek team extra time to arrive and get settled in for the game.

At 8:30 pm, Zamalek team still hadn’t arrived which is when the referee gave an extra 10 minutes before calling off the match. This all leads back to the rumors that have been going around since last time’s game.

If you remember clearly, both teams got into a huge knockout with players Kahraba and Shikabala truly shaming our country by acting violently. Both players received their consequences, but Mortada Mansour is rumored to have disliked the decisions that are being taken.

Since Thursday’s match, Mortada decided that they won’t be playing the game that was to take place last night! He claims that his reasons are due to the unfair treatment between both teams, but rumor has it that he feared Zamalek would lose last nights game against Al Ahly.

Another rumor states that Mortada had originally planned to fake injuries from his players in hopes of not having to play the match. On the other hand, those rumors got leaked very quickly which is why Mortada swore he wouldn’t play the game in the first place! Do you think that’s true?

Zamalek missed yesterday’s match supposedly due to the heavy rain that’s been poring lately. Now people are skeptical about them having really missed the match. Anonymous tip claims that the Zamalek team had been stalling the entire way to the stadium by stopping at petrol stations or even supermarkets.

Either way, no one can really pin point the truth behind yesterday’s shocking incident. We’ll never truly understand the intentions behind the Zamalek team and Mortada Mansour but the fact that they missed the game earned the Ahly team 3 points automatically. Also, three points have already been deducted from the Zamalek team for having missed the match.

“We are sorry for this scene and we will apply the regulations. After coordinating with the security forces we were informed that there were no obstacles preventing both teams’ buses from arriving at the stadium,” the EFA said following the game.

With all that said, we want to know what you think! What do you believe actually happened yesterday? Do you think that the rumors are actually true or do you think that Zamalek purposely missed yesterday’s match and are just pointing fingers at the terrible weather?

Mortada Mansour Faces a Four-Year Suspension




Zamalek Club president Mortada Mansour has been suspended for four years. The Egyptian Football Association (EFA), headed by Amr al-Ganainy, has officially notified the International Federation of Association Footbal (FIFA) of the four-year suspension.

An additional letter was sent to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) by officials from the EFA, regarding a penalty against Mansour. The sanctions issued against him include his suspension and a 100,000EGP fine. 

The actions enforced by the committee come in light of several complaints that came against Mansour by several sports federations and clubs, including Al-Ahly Club, the Egyptian Handball Federation, the EFA, and various members of the Zamalek Club.

The committee called on Egypt’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Ashraf Sobhy, in order to apply the penalties in accordance with Article 84 of the Egyptian Constitution and the provisions of Sports Law No. 71 of 2017.

In response to the suspension and penalties enforced, Mansour submitted on Monday an official memorandum against the committee’s decision. 

Ashraf Sobhy said that the memorandum will be looked at and studied examined before making any decision.

Mansour made a statement earlier during an interview with journalist Ahmed Moussa on Egypt’s Sada al-Balad satellite channel that his suspension “will not be implemented and I will continue my work normally,” adding that only the General Assembly of the Zamalek Club has the right to determine his fate.

Africa Cup of Nations Postponed Until 2022




The confederation of African Football just announced yesterday the postponement of the Africa Cup of Nations until 2022, which was scheduled in 2021.

“After consultation with stakeholders and taking into consideration the current global situation, the tournament has been rescheduled for January 2022. The date for the final tournament and the remaining matches of the qualifiers will be communicated in due course,” a statement read on the CAF website.

The CAF executive committee held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the fate of the competition amid the outbreak of the virus.

“This decision was taken due to the uncertainties about the coronavirus health situation and especially because of the scheduling problems since four rounds of qualifiers would need to be fitted into the October and November windows for international matches,” CAF President Ahmad Ahmad told a news conference after the meeting.

The Nations Cup was supposed to be held next January in Cameroon, but given that the CAF has postponed three rounds of qualifiers already, the fate of the tournament has become unclear.

All continental sports activities have also been suspended since March due to the pandemic, including the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup, which were originally scheduled to be played on 1 May.

We are sure a lot of football enthusiasts are disappointed by the news, but it’s for the best as safety of players and the audience come first.
