Al Ahly to play behind closed doors
The Confederation of African Football has banned Al Ahly fans for four matches after their fans used fireworks in their match against Tusker of Kenya during the African Champions League.
The Cairo based team will start playing behind closed doors from next Sunday when they will host the Tunisian Sharks "Bizertin" in the Egyptian capital after their goalless draw in the first match in Tunisia.
Not only did CAF fine Al Ahly , but the Egyptian Ministry of Interior also decided to up the ante. Now all fans of Al Ahly , Zamalek and Ismaily will not be allowed to attend the matches of the African Champions League and African Confederation Cup.
This is not the first time CAF has punished Al Ahly for their fan’s behavior . The African body fined Al Ahly when their fans harmed one of Zambian player fielded by Zesco also with fireworks during the African Champions League in 2011. The fine then was playing one match behind closed doors.
