Egyptian Football Association to organize new tournament ‘Cup of President’



A member of the Professional Clubs Association (PCA), Ismail Selim, said on Sunday that the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) will launch a new football tournament titled ‘Cup of President’ in the near future.

During an interview with the Radio program “Stad al-Hadaf”, Selim added that the tournament will be organized in line with the EFA’s three competitions: the Egyptian Premier League, Egypt Cup and the Super Cup.

“The basic goal of the new competition is to increase the incomes of the 18 club members in the PCA,” Selim followed.

He continued, “we are currently setting the date of the competition which will be played between the end of the Egyptian Premier League and the new season — it will continue for two weeks and will be played with the knockout system.”
