Egypt Football Association (EFA) President Samir Zaher revealed Saturday that the Premier League matches will restart on time, denying reports that the current revolutionary unrest will disrupt domestic competitions.
“We have no intention to delay domestic league matches," Zaher told Ahram Online.
"The league matches will be played on time with fans in the audience," he added.
"Football is the main entertainment for people in Egypt," the EFA president insisted.
The seventh week of the Egyptian Premier League has been delayed to an undisclosed time, due to the Olympic team preparation to the African Championship that qualify to the 2012 London Games.
