The Egyptian FA (EFA) will for the fourth time extend the suspension of football activities until the end of May as Egypt extends lockdown measures due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The country has experienced a steep increase in COVID-19 cases ith over 7,000 confirmed cases and almost 400 deaths, and now the government has decided to extend the enforced curfew on its citizens from 9PM to 6AM.
This decision has forced the EFA to prolong the suspension of all football activities -for the fourth time- until the end of May.
There has been optimism that football will be allowed to resume in the coming weeks after the EFA met with the Egyptian Sports and Youth minister Ashraf Sobhi to discuss the resolution of how football will be continued after the COVID-19 outbreak.
The EFA have already revealed that they aren’t planning on cancelling the Egyptian Premier League. And board member, Mohamed Fadl, even revealed that they’re prepared to continue the league at any time.
