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


In 2009–10 Egyptian Second Division, Wadi Degla made history. The team defeated El-Sekka El-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]
