Board of Directors of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) chaired by Eng. Hany Abu Reda has refused changing rules either of relegation or promotion to the Egyptian Premier League (EPL) over the next season. They also refuse to increase the number teams compete in the second section of the Egyptian League (EL) from 12 to 14 ones. They insisted on those rules to be still in place over the next period. They also decided to divide the EL into three groups including Cairo، Delta and Upper Egypt. It is worth to mention that Board of Directors of EFA have decided to promote three teams from the second from the EPL by the next season. In the same line، three teams were relegated from the EPL to the second section.
