The Football Association appointed its former CEO, Tharwat Swailem, and its former board member, Safi El-Din Bassiouni, within the Clubs Association, and they will participate in the first meeting of the Association on Wednesday.
The Club Association consists of 5 elected members: Senator Ahmed Diab, former Al-Ahly player Imad Miteb, former Zamalek marketing director Khaled Refaat, former head of the competitions committee Amer Hussein, and former Egyptian board member Sherif Saleh.
According to the regulation, the Football Association has the right to appoint two members within the association, namely Swailem and Bassiouni.
What is the role of the Club Association?
The association elections were held according to the old regulations of the Football Association, as the new regulations, which were voted on by the General Assembly of the Football Association last November, have not been published in the Official Gazette yet.
Therefore, the regulation issued in 2017 defines the roles of the association.
The primary functions of the association are:
- Formation of a committee to manage the league competition.
- Managing all marketing, commercial, television and advertising rights associated with the league.
- Managing the financial returns of the association, and how to distribute them to the league clubs.
- Organizing and supervising the financial matters of the Association
- Amending and approving the association’s bylaw, after the association’s general assembly has approved it, and the Football Association has approved it as well.
The list of the association stipulates that it will form a committee to manage the competition, in coordination with the Football Association. This committee is responsible for setting the league table, taking into account the commitments of the teams and the participation of the continental clubs.
The regulation also clarifies how to distribute the clubs’ financial returns as a result of broadcasting rights, as the Football Association receives 15% of those returns.
The association itself obtains a percentage not exceeding 2% of it, as well as determining the percentage of each club of those rights and distributing them in the case of collective sale, and obtaining the percentage of each club from the sponsoring companies in the case of a single sale.
Likewise, the Association has the right to set controls for television broadcasting in terms of terms and conditions, and the obligations of each club.
