Wadi Degla FC (Arabic: نادي وادي دجلة‎) is an Egyptian football club based in Cairo. In 2009-10, it promoted to the Egyptian Premier League for its first time in its history.


In 2009–10 Egyptian Second Division, Wadi Degla made history. The team defeated Al-Sekka Al-Hadid 3-1 in the last week of the competition to seal promotion to the highest level of football in Egypt, Egyptian Premier League, for the first time in its history.[1][2] It took Wadi Degla only one season to promote from the second division to the premier league. This is a historical achievement that was only reached once before by Al-Mokawloon Al-Arab (a.k.a. Arab Contractors) in 1981.[1]

Satellite clubs[edit]

Wadi Degla is known to have a large youth football academy.[3] It is a similar project to that of ASEC Mimosas. The club has a close relationship with England's Arsenal Football Club.[4]
