El-Entag el-Harby Sporting Club (Arabic: نادي الإنتاج الحربي الرياضي‎), sometimes referred to as Military Production, is an Egyptian sports club based in Cairo, Egypt. The club is mainly known for its football team, which currently plays in the Egyptian Premier League, the highest league in the Egyptian football league system. The club is owned by the Egyptian Ministry of Military Production.

Founded in 2004, the club managed to reach the Egyptian Premier League for the first time in their history in 2009 after they were promoted from the 2008–09 Egyptian Second Division by finishing first in their group.

History[edit]

After a long and an intense race with Al Nasr and El Dakhleya in 2008–09, El-Entag El-Harby secured its first appearance ever in the Egyptian Premier League. The team needed their last match that season (2–2 tie with GASCO) to win promotion. In preparation for its premier league campaign, El-Entag El-Harby appointed Tarek Yehia as the new manager. Yehia quickly looked for the option of signing experienced Egyptian players that could lead the team to prevent relegation. He signed players such as Mohamed Aboul Ela (Zamalek former captain), Mostafa Kamal (Veteran Goal Keeper), Hassan Mousa, and others.

Tarek Yehia enjoyed great success with his team. Surprisingly, El-Entag El-Harby finished 7th in its first season at the Premier League level (2009–10).[1] However, Yehia's era at the club lasted for only that season. He preferred to move to newly promoted Misr Lel Makasa. Osama Orabi replaced him.[2]
