The cabinet approved a request of the Ministry of Youth and Sports to give EGP 100,000 in compensation to each family of the football fans killed in a stampede while trying to enter the stadium.

On 8 February at least 22 people were killed after police attempted to disperse fans whilst entering the Air Force Stadium in Cairo. The fans were entering the stadium to watch the game between Zamalek and ENPPI teams.

UWK described the violence against Zamalek fans as a “deliberate massacre”, claiming the special security measures were prepared only one day before the match, and had never been used in football stadiums inside or outside Egypt.
