The Egyptian Premier
League season, suspended after 74 spectators died in a riot
following a match in Port Said between Al Masry and champions Al
Ahly on February 1, has been cancelled with 19 games remaining.
The league will be replaced by a friendly tournament due to
run from March 29-May 18, the Egyptian FA announced on Saturday.
Haras El Hedoud were top of the 19-team table after 17
matches, one point ahead of Al Ahly.
Last month Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the
Central African Republic was also postponed in the aftermath of
the Port Said disaster.
The two countries will now meet twice in June.
