Egyptian soccer clubs to resume training on Saturday

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian soccer clubs will return to training on Saturday as the country moves toward resuming the league season in July following a long suspension caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Youth and Sports Minister Ashraf Sobhi says league matches will resume on July 25 “under strict precautionary measures.” He says the Egyptian soccer association and the clubs are responsible for taking “all preventive and precautionary measures.” Association president Amr El-Ganainy says medical guidelines have been prepared and will be handed over to clubs to follow before training and games. Egypt suspended soccer and other sporting activities in mid-March.
