Ahly supporters have been given permission to attend the CAF Super Cup match against Tunisian side Sfaxien at Cairo stadium on 20 February.

"We have received confirmation from the interior ministry that fans will attend the CAF Super Cup game," Ahly vice-general manager Mohamed Morgan was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

All football activities in Egypt have been played behind closed doors due to security concerns since the army ousted elected president Mohamed Morsi amid mass protests on 3 July.

Ahly won the African Champions League title in November after beating South Africa's Orlando. Sfaxien won the Confederation Cup title after beating TP Mazembe of DR Congo.

Ahly are the record holders of the African Super Cup with five titles under their belt. They beat Sfaxien 2-1 in the same competition in 2009.
