Amer Hussein, head of the local competitions committee in Egypt, revealed the initial date for the quarter-final matches of the Egypt Cup last season, after adjusting the date of the matches of the fourth round of the league.
The league competition was suspended after the third round matches due to the climate conference, and the fourth round was modified to take place between the sixth and seventh rounds on December 11 and the previously scheduled date for the Egypt Cup quarter-finals.
Amer Hussein said on Al-Hayat channel: “After postponing the fourth round, I deliberately made its presence between the sixth and seventh rounds, on the date set previously for the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup.”
The head of the Competitions Committee revealed, “On December 11 and 12, the fourth round competitions will be held, while the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup will be at the end of November, after the three postponed matches scheduled for November 23.”
Future will host the Aswan team, while Ismaily will be a guest of FARCO, and finally the Pyramids will host the National Bank team in the postponed matches scheduled for November 23.
Amer Hussein added, “The initial date for the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup will be November 26 and 27 instead of December 11 and 12.”
“On November 20, it will be the preliminary round of the League Cup, which will consist of four teams,” Amer Hussein added.
He explained, “They are the newly promoted trio of the league alongside Ghazl El-Mahalla, the last team that did not relegated from last season, and two of them qualified for the final price.”
Speaking about the Egyptian national team, he said: “It was agreed to play one friendly match, which will be against Belgium, and the team’s camp will be on November 7.”
“I don’t think that Clattenburg’s absence to analyze the World Cup matches will affect his work,” he added.
Amer Hussein concluded his statements, “Certainly there will be an agreement between him and Gamal Allam, the president of the federation.”
