FilGoal | News | Al-Masry in the Joule: We suggested to the Football Association that the league should continue during the Olympics


Al-Masry Vice President Mohamed El-Khouli explained that his club had proposed a solution to the Egyptian Football Association to end the current season of the Premier League at an early date.

Al-Khouli said “We presented a solution in the previous meeting, which is to play matches without the Olympic players (during the Olympics). This is a solution to reduce the stoppage periods. Some clubs are looking into this proposal now.”

And he continued, “The clubs are financially and technically affected by the cohesion of the seasons. Solutions and consultations must be made between all the responsible authorities to ease the pressure on the clubs.”

Ahmed Mujahid, president of the Football Association, stated earlier that the league should end on September 30th.

The league will be suspended for the Egyptian national team matches in June, September, October and December, and perhaps November if the team reaches the final stage of the World Cup qualifiers.

And next January, Egypt will compete in the African Cup.

It may also stop during the month of July due to Egypt’s participation in the Tokyo Olympics 2020.

Most of the clubs have only played 19 games this season so far, which means that they have 15 more matches left.
