Two months after hostilities were halted in Egypt following the outbreak of the CoronaVirus pandemic, the country’s football seem to be closing in on a return.

The Egyptian government has endorsed the resumption of training for Egyptian top-flight clubs from June 15, 2020.

The decision is a major move in the country’s desire to see football resume after a lengthy wait.

The Egyptian Football Association has previously met with club owners to discuss the way forward with some clubs against a resumption of the current campaign but leaders Al Ahly openly voicing their intention to continue the season sooner or later.

So far, 18 of the 34 games have been played and Al Ahly are well on course to winning their 42nd domestic league title. They are 16 points ahead of second-placed Al Mokawloon.

The final decision on when the league proper will resume will be made in the days ahead by the authorities responsible for doing so.

There have been media speculations that if football has to resume, it will be played in specified venues with a number of restrictions.

The football family has suffered a loss of a coach so far.

Last week, coach Mohamed Abdou of local side Club Badr Sports passed on to eternity due to Covid-19.

In all, Egypt has registered more than 14229 confirmed cases and nearly 680 deaths due to the virus, out of a population of 110 million inhabitants.
