Turki Al-Sheikh, the chairman of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority, has confirmed that renowned football manager José Mourinho will be part of the analysis team for the Egypt Cup final. This exciting development comes as the Egyptian Football Association collaborates with the Saudi Arabian Football Federation to stage the Cairo derby in the final of the 2022-2023 Egypt Cup, which will take place in Riyadh.

In preparation for the highly anticipated match between Al Ahly and Zamalek, a total of 44 cameras will cover the action, including 28 inside the stadium.
