The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced on Sunday the fixture list for the Egyptian Premier League 2015-16 season. The fixtures were determined at random at the EFA headquarters.
The 56th edition of the league is scheduled to start on 21 October.
Champions Zamalek will kick off their title-defence bid against Petrojet, while holders of a record 37 trophies Ahly will start the season against Talae El-Geish.
The two Cairo-based clubs will not face-off until match-day 17 of the season.
The final of this season's Egypt Cup – the domestic cup competition - will be held on Monday and contested by rivals Ahly and Zamalek in what promises to be a hurricane of a match.
