The Egyptian Football Association is yet to decide on where to stage the Egypt Super Cup between Premier League champions and the Egypt Cup runners-up.

The clash between Al Ahly and Al Masry could be held in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, but the Competitions Committee is yet to decide.

"The Egypt Super Cup game will be played on 12 January but we have not determined the country that will host the game," Egypt's Competitions Committee chief told a radio programme.

"We are comparing between Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Jordan to determine the game's venue."

Despite recently missing out on the CAF Champions League, the Red Devils lifted the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt's Cup titles whilst Masry finished second in the cup competition.

Coach Hossam El-Badry's men are the reigning Super Cup record holders with nine titles and will hope to add their 10th title.
