Amer Hussein, supervisor of the Competitions Committee in the Club Association, revealed that the list of the Egyptian Super Cup has not changed for 8 years, despite the statements of Mazen Marzouk, the former head of the Committee of the Football Association.

Marzouk had stated in December 2020 when he was responsible for the competitions committee that the Super Cup list will change in the 2020-2021 season version, and that the 2019-2020 version between Al-Ahly and Tala’a Al-Jaish is the last that will be held on the old list.

Marzouk indicated at the time that the new regulation stipulates that if the league champion is the same as the cup champion, the runner-up of the league champion will participate in the tournament.

Al-Ahly, the league and cup champions in the 2019-2020 season, faced his counterpart, Tala’a Al-Jaish, the runners-up of the cup, and the military team was able to crown the title for the first time in its history.

Zamalek, the league and cup champion, played the 2020-2021 season against its rival Al-Ahly, and the red team won at the “Hazza bin Zayed” stadium, after the match was postponed to be held last October.

And there was no problem with the list because Al-Ahly was the runner-up in the league and runner-up in the Cup.

It seems that Marzouk’s statements were not applied, as the regulation remained the same, requiring the participation of the runner-up of the cup champion if one team combined the league and cup titles.

What did Amer Hussain say?

Amer Hussein said, in statements to “etc” channel, in the early hours of Thursday morning, “Every period, rumors are raised about the regulations, although we put very precise details in all the terms to prevent confusion on social media.”

He added, “One of the former heads of committees in the Football Association caused confusion with his statements about the list of the Egyptian Super Cup earlier, but we did not change the list. Last season’s list is the list for the current season.”

Hussein continued, “The super list has not changed for about 8 years, and it states that if the league champion is the same as the cup champion, the runner-up for the cup champion participates in the tournament.”

He continued, “The Super List, when the tournament started, stipulated that if the league champion was the same as the cup champion, he would participate in the runner-up of the league, but the Football Association saw at the time that it was expected that Al-Ahly and Zamalek would participate in most copies, so he decided to choose the runner-up for the cup champion.”

And about his accusation that the regulations could be changed for the benefit of one of the teams, he replied, “When the regulations are drawn up, we do not know who will be the league champion or the cup champion, so how will we set regulations for the benefit of a particular team?”

Zamalek crowned the league title in the 2021-2022 season, and the cup champion is waiting to face it in the next edition of the Super Cup.
