Zamalek withdraw from the foot, basket and hand tournaments
Zamalek announced that it had submitted complaints against the football, basket and hand federations to the Olympic Committee and the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Egypt, according to the club’s official website.
And Zamalek demanded, during the statement, to investigate various facts, while preserving the right of asylum to any other party to obtain the right of the club without compromise.
Among the facts that the club demanded to investigate is failure to comply with the regulations regarding the Born in 1999 Football League championship, according to which “Zamalek must be considered the winner of the tournament, while another club (Al-Ahly) was unjustly satisfied,” according to the statement.
As well as “the penalty imposed on the player Imam Ashour and the claim that no appeal was lodged against the penalty, which confirms the direction of the committee running the Football Association towards a particular club, and the suspicious position of trying to hide the grievance presented by the club.”
Zamalek also called for “investigation into imposing penalties on the basketball team for violating regulations and depriving Zamalek of its right as winning the Al-Ahly match, although Zamalek evacuated the stands.”
The club also objected to “awarding the title of the Egyptian Handball Cup last season to Al-Ahly club without a legal basis, in order to miss the opportunity for the honorable sporting competition for the title.”
And he called for an investigation into the appointment of referees for the team’s football matches, “who had previous positions hostile to the club,” according to the statement.
In the conclusion of the statement, Zamalek clarified that “he will not contest any meeting in the three games until the requests of the White Club are answered.”
