Security to check fans’ IDs at Egypt-Tunisia game, spectators denied Super Cup entry

The Interior Ministry has approved the attendance of fans at Wednesday's soccer game between Egypt and Tunisia, which comes as part of the second round of the 2015 African Nations qualifiers in Morocco.


Security sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm that major security measures are in place. 

Meanwhile, Cairo Security Department approved holding the local Super Cup match between Ahly and Zamalek, which will be played on Sunday at Air Defense stadium.

The ministry earlier approved playing the Super Cup matches in Egypt, refusing that they be played at any Arab country and conditioning that fans do not attend.

The 2011-2012 season was stopped due to the massacre that took place at Port Said stadium in February 2012, which left 72 fans of Ahly club dead due to violence.

The 2013-2014 season was also stopped due to the events that led to the ouster of president Mohamed Morsy.

Matches were later resumed without fans according to a decision by the security authorities.
