Egyptian Sports Minister Khaled Abdel-Aziz has given the green light for Ahly and Zamalek to play their Egyptian Premier League games at Cairo Stadium.

"Ahly's coming game in the Egyptian Premier League will be played at Cairo Stadium," Abdel-Aziz told reporters on Thursday during a visit to the club's headquarters.

The stadium is being renovated with regards to security measures, including the gates and surveillance cameras.

The Egyptian Football Association announced that Zamalek's Sunday's game against Wadi Degla on the seventh matchday of the league will be played at the stadium after receiving the green light from the interior ministry.

Zamalek are seventh in the league table with nine points after playing six games, while Ahly, who played only three games due to participation in the CAF Champions League, are ninth with seven points.
