Egypt’s Afcon Trophy Goes Missing

Published

on


The Egyptian FA (EFA) have started investigations into how several trophies at its headquarters in Cairo have gone missing with an original African Cup of Nations reportedly among them.

“As the Egyptian FA is currently developing the main headquarters, including changing the entrance to a small museum of Egyptian football, the management was shocked by the disappearance of some old trophies from the storeroom,” the EFA said in a statement.

“The EFA was surprised to find that the AFCON trophy was lost and decided to open an investigation. Nobody knows where the trophy is,” Ahmed Shobier, a former EFA vice-president said.

According to the BBC, after the EFA headquarters were attacked in 2013, various trophies – including the Nations Cup – were moved to a storeroom.

However, local officials only searched for them recently after the decision to renovate the EFA’s entrance so that Egypt’s multiple football cups could be displayed there.

“The EFA is now investigating the trophies’ disappearance to determine if those old trophies were saved after the building was burned … or if they were lost when the building was exposed during this incident,” the EFA added.

Confederation of African Football (Caf) regulations state that a team that wins a particular incarnation of the Africa Cup of Nations trophy three times can win it.
