The Ultras Ahlawy spent years battling Egypt’s brutal police state. Years later, they would become revolutionaries.
Your reporting on the Ultras is always so interesting!
I remember reading James Montague's books on the tensions within Egypt and the Ultras role in bringing down Mubarak. It's incredible to me that after what happened, the Ultras were cast out and pushed to the edges of society
I first heard of Al Ahly when they played the Seattle Sounders in the FIFA Club World Cup, I had no idea their supporters had such a fascinating political history. Thanks for a fascinating read, Karim!
Excellent work, Karim!
