WHAT IS THE EGYPT DIVISION 1

The Egypt Division 1 is the top professional level of the Egyptian football league system. It is also called the Egyptian Premier League which is run under the administration of the CAF Confederation

The league was founded on 22 October 1948 and had the 18-team format since the 2015-16 season. A season mostly runs from August to May. The Egypt Premier League operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the Egyptian Second Division. All matches are played all over the week. All of the clubs of the league qualify for the Egypt Cup, and the champion of the league enters the Egyptian Super Cup. 

Following the CAF’s 5-year Ranking for the 2019-20 season, the Egypt Division 1 is one of the top national leagues which is ranked third in Africa. In 2005, the Egyptian Premier League had the first sponsorship:

  • 2005-07: It was called the Vodafone Egyptian Premier League under the sponsorship of the Vodafone mobile network operator
  • 2007-11: Etisalat Egyptian Premier League appeared for a similar reason.
  • 2011-14: It was  Vodafone Egyptian Premier League again.
  • 2014- present: Egyptian Premier League had been sponsored by Presentation Sports

HOW IS THE FORMAT OF THE EGYPT DIVISION 1?

There are 18 teams taking part in the Premier League. During the season, each club plays the others twice at home and away, for a total of 34 games. The results of the teams are determined by points. Teams receive three points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. If the total points are equal, then the direct confrontation, goal difference, and goals scored are used to decide the winner. 

The two best teams of the championship qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The best team also gains the winning title of the Egyptian Premier League that season. The third-placed team enters the Confederation Cup, and the three last-ranked teams are relegated to the Second Division. On the contrary, the top three clubs from the three groups of the Second Division are promoted instead.
