Masry still barred from Egypt league, says Egypt FA
Masry will not be allowed to play in the Egyptian league this season, the Egyptian Football Association's (EFA) interim board said, despite a court decision to lift sanctions imposed on the team following February's fatal Port Said disaster.

Minister of Sports El-Amry Farouk has stated that domestic football competition should restart.
