The Egyptian Premier League (Arabic: الدوري المصري الممتاز‎) is an Egyptian professional league for football clubs and represents the top flight of Egyptian football. The three most popular Egyptian clubs are Al-Ahly, Zamalek SC and Ismaily. Other historically established sides include El-Ittihad El-Iskandary, Tersana and El-Masry. The championship consists of sixteen competing teams in a home and away league system, and is currently ranked the 28th-most competitive league in the world by the IFFHS [1].It is currently known as the Etisalat Egyptian Premier League, after the Emirati communications company signed a sponsorship deal with the Egyptian FA. No more than three foreign players are allowed on any side in the Egyptian Premier League.

Stadiums

Cairo International Stadium is home to Cairo giants Ahly and Zamalek. Ismailia Stadium is home to Ismaily SC. The recently opened Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria (capacity: 86,000) is currently mainly used for international competition, as it was constructed as part of Egypt's failed bid to land the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, there is speculation that League sides from Alexandria will eventually call it their home grounds.
