A new shot in the stands of Al-Ahly fans causes controversy, but this time a funny controversy, as the fans of the Red Castle raised the flag of Yemen during the team’s match against Smouha.
The Al-Ahly and Smouha match was held today, Thursday, November 25, 2021, which will be held within the matches of the sixth round of the Egyptian Premier League.
Al-Ahly leads the Egyptian Premier League table with 15 points, after it succeeded in collecting the full points from the first 5 rounds by winning all of them.
Al-Ahly club will host its counterpart Smouha at Al-Ahly Wei Al-Salam Stadium, Cairo Governorate.
Al-Ahly fans raised the flag of Yemen in the stands of Al-Ahly Wei Al-Salam stadium, during the determination of the Egyptian national anthem.
The fans raised the Yemeni flag instead of the Egyptian flag, following the decision of the Professional Clubs Association to ban a number of fans from the team’s next two matches because of singing and chanting during the determination of national peace.
And a campaign of ridicule was launched against Al-Ahly fans after raising the flag of Yemen instead of the flag of Egypt, as the two flags are similar.
The flag of Egypt is similar to the flag of Yemen, the only difference being the presence of an eagle in the middle of the Egyptian national flag.
And social networking sites were divided over the clip of raising the flag of Yemen in the Al-Ahly stands, which some praised as a snapshot of the Egyptian flag.
While the other part mocked the scene and raised the flag of Egypt instead of Yemen, and the masses did not differentiate between the two flags.
