The Ahly football team plays for Nadi el Ahly, or the National Sporting Club. This sporting club was formed in 1907 and was the first club for Egyptians in Egypt. The Zamalek football team is the main rival of El Ahly. Both teams are part of the Egyptian Premier League.  

 

 

At the Ahly sporting club, a stadium was built and named after the famous football player, Mahmoud Mukhar (“Al-Tetsh”). Today, players like Mohamed Abou Treika and Ayman Abdelaziz play at Cairo International Stadium, pictured to the left.

 

Since the book’s publication in 2008, Egypt’s national football team, The Pharaohs, won another African Cup title in 2010 meaning that they have won a total of 7 of these championships!
