The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has announced that 30,000 fans will be allowed to attend Egypt's national team friendly game against Tanzania that takes place at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium on Thursday within the scope of preparations for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Pharaohs have begun their final preparatory closed camp, two weeks ahead of the beginning of the African football tournament, which the country is hosting this year.

AFCON has been expanded to 24 teams and will run between 21 June and 19 July.

The record seven-time African champions Egypt will play in Group A alongside DR Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe.

Egypt will kick off the tournament by playing Zimbabwe on 21 June.
