Egypt's Cup competition has been cancelled due to security reasons and apparently the league has still not resumed and may not go ahead at all this season.

Egypt's national team is training on it's own in preparation for June's World Cup and African Cup qualifying. They are unbeaten in a series of friendlies mainly played in assorted Persian Gulf states.

After a 7 month hiatus Egyptian league play will resume in August.

And the Ultras, especially from Al Ahly, are upset at the league resuming before the trial of those charged with inciting the violence at last year's Al Masry-Al Ahly game takes place.


On Wednesday, the trial was suspended until Sep. 17 to allow the court time to review a request by the defense to replace the judge.

The demonstrators also protested that the Al-Masry team, whose fans were believed to be in part responsible for the deadly riots, will be allowed to play again. The team was banned by Egypt's Football Association, but the decision was overturned by an international court of arbitration for sports.

The Al-Masry team has said it will forfeit its games this season due to security concerns and because many of its players were allowed to transfer to other teams.

Apparently the protests worked, Egypt football federation delays league games.

Egypt's Sports Ministry has decided to delay the start of the country's premier league for one month, following the storming by angry fans of the football association's headquarters.

Association head Amer Hussein told reporters Saturday that delaying games until Oct. 17 is to allow the 18 league teams to be paid from television stations broadcasting matches.

Egypt will finally kick off their delayed soccer season on Dec. 15, ending a 10-month hiatus of domestic action in Africa's most successful nation since the Port Said Stadium disaster earlier this year, the local football association said.

**************************
It is likely the new season will be sped up by dividing the teams into two groups to limit fixtures and then have a playoff competition in May to decide the title.

Wow they do not play in Egypt when it comes to dealing out "justice." Yet it is very hard to justify such harsh sentences, the ultimate criminal sentence, in this instance.

The cycle of violence continues in Egypt Relatives and angry young men rampaged through the Egyptian city of Port Said on Saturday in assaults that killed at least 27 people following death sentences for local fans involved in the country's worst bout of soccer violence

The death sentences are appealable. But this is not Italy where everything gets turned over on appeal.

Most of the death sentences are confirmed after appeal. Upsetting supporters of both Al Ahly (who think some escaped justice) and of Al Masry (who think the punishments were too severe),

QUOTE
The ruling enraged residents of Port Said, at the northern entrance of the Suez Canal, by confirming the death sentences imposed on 21 local soccer fans for their role in the riot last year, when more than 70 people were killed.

But the court also angered rival fans in Cairo by acquitting a further 28 defendants whom they wanted punished, including seven members of the police force, reviled across society for its brutality under deposed autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Security sources said two people, a man in his 30s and a young boy, had died in Cairo from the effects of tear gas and rubber bullets. A total of 65 people were injured.

An "eye for an eye" apparently still applies in Egypt. Death sentences for a football riot, then others causing further deaths because they think the punishments are either too severe or don't go far enough! What a screwed up society!

It is beyond my wildest imagination how Bob Bradley can possibly stand it there, let alone like it.

He could be comfortably back in the US coaching an MLS side or driving a refuse truck. Either would be a far better circumstance. blink.gif

More trouble for Egypt's League, Egypt league cancelled because of security concerns,


The Egyptian soccer league has been cancelled because of the security situation following the military overthrow of the country's president Mohamed Mursi this month.

On Tuesday, the Egyptian Football Association made official the end of the 2012/13 campaign with one round of the regular season remaining and a four-team play-off for the title to come


And the Al Ahly-Zamalek match in the African Champions League has been moved from Cairo to a small resort town on the Red Sea (El Gouna) over 400km away from the two clubs' home.
