History of Ahly

When I was in Egypt last christmas I got given some convoluted history of Ahly and why everyone I saw (in Cairo and outside) seemed to only support Ahly. Now from my poor Arabic, I have deduced that Ahly means "people" yes? (ie. Ahl al-Kitab "people of the book") and this one person was saying to me is that it is supported by 80% of the Egyptian population because he said something about being set up by ordinary Egyptians who weren't allowed to play for Zemalak. He said that the majority of Egyptians support Ahly even when they play for local teams that they support otherwise and that stadiums are mainly full of Ahly fans even when away.

Can someone please tell me if this is all true (and if so fill it out) and if not, tell what is true and what isn't. Thanks guys!

First of all, Ahl would mean people or family, in this case though, Ahly means National. So it's National Club. About the fan support, it is indeed true that the good majority of Egyptians support Ahly, but i would say about 70%. Its also true that in most away games Ahly fans are more than the local fans, which also reflects the popularity.

Aha thank you - I knew the name indicated popular sentiment.

When was Ahly set up and by whom?

With my knowledge of Egyptian football I have no chance of contributing more! I don't have a clue - indeed I have only heard of 3 Egyptian clubs, Ahly, Zemalek and Ismailiyya.

Is Ahly based in Cairo? I know Zemalek is and obviously Ismailiyya is based in Ismailiyya.

Also what other clubs are there? Particularly down South as the ones I've heard of are in the North. Do any other teams apart from Ahly or Zemalek win the title?

Thanks for answering my questions guys!

Enppi is a tough club,, the one that made Zamalek win last year's title when enppi beat ahly in the last match,, if ahly beat enppi,, ahly could have won thier 30th league title ..

Ok excuse my ignorance, but who are Enippi and where are they from?

Really I don't know anything and also only know one Egyptian player, Mido.

Thanks for that guys - and I am amazed that when I was in Cairo I failed to see one single stadium when you guys have so many teams playing there!

You guys are lucky that I'll change this avatar later tonight !

I'll put on a Zdenek Zeman avatar, if you catch my drift.

Sorry but I really despise Dopentus. They're a disgrace to football.

Hmmm as you didn't refute my statement regarding Juve being a disgrace to football and just chose to take a swipe at Inter, that means that you pretty much agree eh ?

And why are Inter a disgrace ? We don't fix matches like Milan, Bribe refs and dope players like Juve. Winning and losing is part of the game, and losing is not a disgrace nor a shame. On the other hand, winning by the help of performance enhancing drugs IS a disgrace, mate.

Good day !

P.S. My Zeman avatar just rocks !
