Egyptian FA considering hiring private security firms


The Cairo Post has reported that the Egyptian Football Association is considering hiring private security firms for soccer matches – enabling spectators to be admitted to premier league matches for the first time since a ruling in early 2015 that all games must be held behind closed doors. The ruling came in response to the deaths of 22 spectators at the 30 June Stadium, during confrontations with police forces.

The use of private security forces could pave the way for fans to be readmitted to matches – and is also widely assumed to come in response to posts on the Ultras Ahlawy Facebook page stating that the group plans to attend Al Ahly’s match with Tala’a el-Geish T.
