Officials of the five-year committee of the Football Association decided to resume the league championship on August 7 with the two matches “Al-Ahly and Enppi” and “Zamalek against Egypt” postponed after the African Football Confederation announced the dates of matches and specifically the dates of the African Champions League.
Hossam El-Badry, the technical director of the first team of Egypt, and Shawky Gharib, the technical director of the Olympic team, kept the pressure of the league matches this season, which will be resumed in August, after the news that the matches were squeezed and the games are held every 3 days so that the league ends in mid-October. Al-Badry and Shawky Gharib explained During their meeting with the five-year committee in Al-Jabaliya, the pressure of matches after the long layoff period will cause injuries to players, which negatively affects the teams.
Al-Badry and Shawky Gharib asked Football Association That the time difference between the league matches be expanded, especially in the first weeks of return, and that pressure is gradually graduated with the players regaining their physical fitness and the sensitivity of the matches.
On the other hand, the five-year committee of the Football Association has set some conditions for postponing or canceling the general league matches upon their return in the month of August, after the cabinet decision to resume sports activity, in light of the current conditions and the continuing infections with the new Corona virus.
The officials of the Jabaliyyah explained that a player will be surveyed for each player and a referee before each match, and if the result of the Corona swab does not appear well before the match, the match will not take place on time and will be postponed to a later time.
The Jabaliya officials continued that they requested the appearance of the result of Corona swabs at least 6 hours before any match, and they initially determined the postponement or cancellation of any match for a team comprising of 5 cases infected with Corona virus.
