FIFA Appoints New Normalization Committee To Oversee Egyptian FA

FIFA has installed a new three-man committee to take charge of affairs at the Egyptian Football Association (EFA).

FIFA has installed a new three-man committee to take charge of affairs at the Egyptian Football Association (EFA).

The committee that was led by Zamalek board member Amr El-Ganainy was expected to remain until January 2021 but the world football governing body has decided to appoint new members.

Ahmed Megahed will be the new chairman with Mohamed El-Shawarbi, a former member of CAF’s competitions committee, and Ahmed Hossam El-Din Awad, an ex-official of Cairo’s popular club Ahly joining him on the committee.

The new committee is tasked with the day-to-day running of the Egyptian FA until January 2021, whereby they are expected to have completed a roadmap for elections.

“The members of the EFA normalisation committee will assume their duties with immediate effect and all other terms of the mandate, as decided by the Bureau of the FIFA Council, will remain the same,” FIFA said in a statement.

The new members of the normalization committee will not be eligible to stand for election at the end of their mandate.

The previous committee that was being led by El-Ganaimy was appointed by FIFA in August 2019 after the previous board stepped down in the wake of Egypt’s embarrassing last-16 exit at the Africa Cup of Nations on home soil.

“FIFA would like to extend its sincere gratitude to Amr El Ganainy and the former members of the normalisation committee for the work achieved and their efforts during the time of their appointment.”
