The 6 stadiums are scattered across the governates of Cairo, Suez, Alexandria, and Ismailia, and they are, namely : Cairo Stadium, Al-Salam Stadium, Alexandria Stadium, Ismailia Stadium, Suez Stadium, and 30 June Stadium/ Air Defense Forces Stadium.
As all of us know, Egypt has always been the historical champion of the African Cup, winning the title 7 times up until now ( 1957, 1959, 1986, 1998, 2006, 2008, and 2010) !
For the first time in Egypt, electronic tickets were introduced, and could be bought through tazkarti.com, where you first create your Fan ID ( which you cannot enter a match without) , by uploading your national ID number, your personal information and attaching a photo of yourself. After you have created your Fan ID, and passed your electronic security check, you will be able to purchase tickers for all the games you wish to attend!
