The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) had amended its regulations in regards to the number of overseas players that clubs are eligible to sign.
Previously only allowing three, the clubs have now liberty to sign one more according to the statement released after the FA meeting with club presidents.
According to BBC Sports, the clubs have also been given a green light to sign a maximum of two further players from Syria or Palestine.
Zamalek have already taken advantage of the rule change to sign two Syrian players while Al Ahly are also in talks to do the same.
With fans currently restricted to particular games due to crowd troubles at stadia, the meeting also tackled the issue of allowing them back into the stands although there was no conclusion reached.
“The meeting also discussed the fans’ return to the stands, as there will be another meeting with interior ministry officials to set the ways to allow fans to enter the stadiums, the allowed numbers, and the responsibilities of each club,” the statement added.
Since February 2012, local fixtures in Egypt have been held behind closed doors when after more than 72 Al Ahly fans died in clashes at the Port Said stadium.
Former Ugandan internationals Geoffrey Massa and Jackson ‘Mia Mia’ Mayanja had professional stints in the country.
