Zamalek’s group of ardent supporters, Ultras White Knights, have hinted that they would storm Sunday’s Egyptian Premier League game at home to Masry despite the imposition of a crowd ban.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) ordered Zamalek to play the match behind closed doors due to the excessive use of fireworks by their fans.

“Be sure that Zamalek will play without their fans in only one case: if we are dead,” Ultras White Knights said on their Facebook page.

“The Southern Stand is always vociferous with our chants and songs. It will get more boisterous if anyone tried to mute it.”

The fans of Ahly, Zamalek’s arch-rivals, also said earlier this week they would attend their side’s clash against Ismaily despite a similar crowd ban. The EFA later postponed the match, which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

The EFA recently revoked a decision to impose crowd bans on teams whose fans light firecrackers, saying it would hand out fines instead.
