CAIRO, Sept 8 (Aswat Masriya) – Egypt's ministers of interior and youth and sports agreed with the Egyptian Football Association on Monday to allow 15 thousand football fans to attend the national team's match against Tunisia.
The match, due to be held at the armed forces' air defence stadium in Cairo on Wednesday, is part of the group stages of the African Nations Cup qualifiers.
Fans will be charged for entry and searched before being allowed into the stadium, reported Reuters.
The meeting parties also agreed to hold the national youth football team's match against South Africa on September 27 in the fans' presence. The super cup game, scheduled for Sunday between Ahly and Zamalek, will nevertheless be held without fans.
Monday's meeting was also attended by members of the Egyptian Football Association and presidents of Egypt's most popular sports clubs.
Football matches have witnessed violent clashes between security forces and fans, especially ultras groups, throughout the past years.
