Egyptian Premier League looks set to return in mid-June after the country's primer minister Mostafa Madbouly hinted at allowing sporting activities.
Football activities in Egypt have been halted since March due to the coronavirus pandemic that has so far infected at least 12,000 people in the country.
The prime minister said that the enforced curfew will remain until mid-June, but says that sporting activities will return once that period is over.
“Life will start to gradually return to normal with precautionary measures in mid-June,” Madbouly said in a press conference.
“The enforced curfew will be extended until mid-June, starting from 8 PM until 6 AM.
“After that period, sporting activities in clubs and youth centers will then return but with precautionary measures.
“Wearing masks will be mandatory before entering any place with large gatherings and anyone who does not comply with these rules will be held legally responsible,” he added.
