The UK's University of Cambridge has reportedly asked Egyptian giants Ahly to share with the school the team's history to be included in the university's syllabus, the club announced on Thursday.

"Ahly management agreed to Cambridge's request and asked board member Khaled Mortagy to contact the university to inquire about the information they need," read a statement on the club's official website on Thursday.

Cambridge, a collegiate research university in England founded in 1209, is the second-oldest university in English-speaking areas, and the world's third-oldest surviving university.

Ahly was recently named as the best team in Africa after extending  its CAF Championship record to eight.
