Port Said massacre: Egyptian league cancelled

Not surprising. The Egyptian Premier League has been cancelled in the aftermath of the Port Said riots on Feb 1st which claimed 74 lives. It has been replaced by a friendly “martyrs” tournament that will run from 29 March to 18 May and include 18 teams.
Al Masry, the club whose fans instigated the tragic events of that day have been expelled from the tournament.
No news of Mohamed Abou-Treika or Mohamed Barakat returning to the game after they announced their retirement in solidarity with the victims.
