After Riot, Egyptian Soccer Will Resume—In Empty Stadiums

Two weeks after a politically charged riot at a game in Port Said resulted in 74 deaths, Egyptian soccer's interim chairman says the Egyptian Premier League will resume play once their investigation is completed. When they do come back, matches will initially be played in empty stadiums until the country has a stable and representative democracy, or a few weeks, whichever comes first. [Ahram Sports]
