Sate Sate’s debut season in Egypt spoiled as league is suspended indefinitely

Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba’s debut season in the Egyptian league has been thrown in turmoil after the Egyptian authorities suspended the league indefinitely following crowd trouble which ended with 22 people dead.

All league matches in Egypt have been suspended until further notice following trouble outside the Air Defense Stadium in Cairo that reportedly resulted in at least 22 deaths.

Fans and police are said to have clashed ahead of the top-of-the-table Premier League encounter between Zamalek and ENPPI on Sunday.

Supporters were reported to have been crushed as they attempted to enter the stadium for a game between the two Cairo clubs and tear gas was fired by police.

The official death toll has not been confirmed, with various reports of how many lost their lives on what was another dark day for Egyptian football.

Three years ago, the league was also suspended after 74 fans were killed following riots at a fixture in Port Said. Sunday’s game still went ahead despite the chaotic scenes outside the stadium and ended in a 1-1 draw.

Kampamba recently moved to Egyptian club Wadi Degla and with only one game played in the Egyptian career will have to wait to know the fate of the league in that country.
