Egypt's interim government has canceled the national cup competition, ending all football in the country this season.
The Egyptian Football Association says that the Ministry of Interior won't allow scheduled Egyptian Cup games to be played from 30 April to 30 May because of security concerns.
The EFA says the ministry also wants court proceedings in connection with the deadly Port Said stadium violence to be completed before football resumes.
League games were called off last month after 74 people were killed in clashes at a game in the Mediterranean city on 1 February.
Around 75 suspects are on trial over the violence. The case was postponed until next month after disturbances in court last week.Tags: football cup, court proceedings, Ministry of Interior won, interim government, Egyptian Cup games
