The Egyptian Professional Clubs Association has settled on the terms of the list for the new season of the Egyptian League, which will be implemented immediately after the start of the competition, which will be held in the next few weeks.
Yalla Koura obtained a copy of the competition regulations, which stipulates the possibility of holding a play-off match in the event the competition ends with two teams equal at the top of the standings, after considering a number of items related to the goals.
How to rank the teams in the new season of the league:
– Total points for each team.
In the event of a tie, the points earned by the teams in their direct confrontations with each other shall be counted.
– In the event of a tie in the direct matches, the goal difference in the direct matches shall be applied, and the goal outside the field is not counted by two goals.
– In the event of the two previous items being equal, the goal difference in the competition shall be applied.
– In the event of equality in the previous three criteria, the number of goals scored by each team in the competition shall be considered.
– In the event of a continuation of equality, a match or play-off matches will be decided upon.
Cancellation or non-completion of the competition:
– If the results of the remaining matches do not affect the first place holder or the relegated teams, the result of the competition shall be approved according to the situation at the time.
– In the event of the cancellation or non-completion of the season after the end of the first round, the final standings will be calculated according to the last order after stopping the competition in the event that all teams are equal in the number of matches played.
– In the event that the teams are not equal in the number of matches played, the final ranking is calculated according to the last week in which all teams were equal in the number of matches played, and the league champion, relegated teams, African participants and all other effects are determined accordingly.
– For the avoidance of doubt, the missing week will not be counted if the match or matches postponed in the final standings will not be counted.
