History

Kasr El Nil and El Mokhtalat(1911-1941)

The club started out as football Club by a Belgian lawyer, Mr. Merzbach on 5 January 1911. It was the first football club in Cairo emerged from its non-English expatriate communities. They formed sports and social clubs each with its own identity. A very important aspect of Zamalek was that it was a club for all people and not for any specific social, economical, or ethnic status. Zamalek started out and continued through World War I under the presidency of Merzbach, and its Belgian secretaries (first Shoduan, then Bochu). The next president was Nicola Arfagi who also played left wing for the club's football team. In 1913, the club moved to a second headquarters at the intersection of the 26th of July and Ramses streets in the premises of the buildings (the real estate month and the higher court) and changed its name to 'mixed' compared to the mixed courts, one of which was Saad Zaghloul "Pioneer of the Egyptian National Movement.In 1917, Egyptian members attempted to form a first Egyptian board for the club, but this was blocked by the President of the club, a Frenchman called M. Piankie and the secretary M. Shoudoi who was Belgian, and as a result, no general members meetings were held for the next few years.In 1922 Zamalek Club wins the first Egyptian Cup in its history. It was the first cup tournament to be held in Egypt. The Egyptian members realized that it was important to increase the number of Egyptian members to gain a majority at the next general members meeting. As a result, the elections were held and the first Egyptian board was elected with Dr. Mohammad Badr as President, Mostafa Hassan as Deputy President, Ibrahim Allam as General Secretary, and Nicola Arkaji, Mahmoud Bassyouni, Hussein Fawzy and Abdo El Jabalawy as board members.After the first board, a new board in 1923 was formed with General Mohammad Haidar as a president. At the beginning of 1941, General Haidar was selected from the assistants of the king. Due to being the favorites of the king, the club's name was changed from AL Moukhtalat to Farouk Al Awal and General Mohammad Haidar stayed as a president at the club for almost thirty years which was unusual at an Egyptian club at this time.Following the 1919 revolution, the club became Egyptian controlled in 1923 under the presidency of General Haidar Pasha

and secretary Youssef Mohamad. In the winter of 1924, the club moved for the third time to what is now known as El Balloon Theater.

Farouk Club(1942-1952)

The name of the club changed again to Farouk. This was in [1941] when King Farouk I of Egypt and Sudan attended the final of Egypt's historic Cup between Zamalek and Al Ahli. Which prompted him to Haider Pasha Minister of War, and the president of the club at the time to change the name of the club to (Farouk Club) and Ismail Bak Shirin of Mohammed Ali's family took the post of vice president of the club the club was renamed Farouk El Awal Club after being honored by its acknowledgement from the King of Egypt and Sudan,King Farouk.

Zamalek Club and The Post 1952 period

Following the army coup against the King in 1952, the club was renamed "Al Zamalek" after the area where the club was situated. The club then moved yet again for the fourth time in its history to its final destination on 26 July Street, just 500 meters west of the Zamalek bridge, occupying an area of 35 acres (140,000 m2) and hosting 24 different sports. .Then in 1952, the Egyptian army revolution came and a new club's board was formed with Dr. Mohammad Shawky as a president who was also the secretary. He is thwarts team in the world 11 leagues only general of the legislation office with high social status right then. In the same board, there was Mohammad Hassan Helmy who is one of the most popular Zamalek figures taking the position of the secretary assistant. Due to the rules right then, half the club board was changed every year and Mohammad Hassan Helmy took the position of secretary general.In 1954, the idea of renovating the club stadium was emerging due to the bad state of the current stadium right then. This led the board to look for a businessman to take over the club and thus help in the stadium renovation. Abd El Hamid El Shawarbi took the presidency and, although, he was elected for a second period, he was not able to do the job he wanted. Right then, some Zamalek Faithful figures as General Haidar Pasha, and Haj Sayed El Annany contributed to setting the VIP stand and the first class stand in a way that suits the high status of the club. All of this happened while Abd El Hamid El Shawarbi was outside Egypt, so when he came back. he resigned without helping the club in any aspect and the board continued after Shawky stepped up from his Deputy position (after he left the presidency kindheartedly) to continue till September 1955. Still the idea of bringing a businessman to help the club did not subside, and thus, the famous businessman Abd El Latif Abo Regeila came as the club president in 1956 where by then, the rules have been changed allowing the board to stay for 3 years. And once again, Dr. Shawky steps down for the new businessman; although, he was reelected as a club president and all for the sake of the club's prosperity. Although Abd El Latif Abo Regeila was reelected for a second presidency period, he had to leave Egypt after he lost his money due to the governmental policy against private property (Bus Company and a mansion at Marg which was the hiding place for many players during the season of resignations). But still the club continued to search for another businessman, and Alwe El Gazzar came as a president who was the owner of El Sheikh Sherieb Company and also the president of the board of the Coca-Cola Company right then. Although he was only president for a short period.

Thus came Tawfeek El Kheshen who took the presidency of the board and the honorary presidency was given to Mohammad Hassan Helmy. In 1973, Mohammad Hassan Helmy was elected to become the president and stayed as the head of the board till 1984 and during this period he was continually elected as the president of one of Egypt's biggest clubs. Zamalek won the first African title against Nigeria's Shooting Stars after beating them back to Cairo 2-0 and the return is also 0-1.Then in 1984 came the". Eng. Hassan Amer and after him came the Eng. Hasan Abo el Fetouh in 1988. During his period, came a new rule by the ministry of youth increasing the number of elected board members to ten which was removed again in 1990. Eng. Hasan Abo el Fetouh helped in building many of the new building the club is proud of as the gymnasium building which is considered one of the biggest in the Middle East. He also increased the funding for most of the sports teams in the club assisting the winning of many championships during his era.

In 1990, came Galal Ibrhim became the president of the club due to the death of Eng. Hasan Abo el Fetouh. This temporary board was held till September 1990 when the general club meeting was held with the elections of which Eng. "Mohamad Nour El Daly" became the president of the new board till 1992. In 1992, Galal Ibrhim came as the new president of the club. As the rules were changed right then and the vice treasurer was to be selected mostly by the board members, and then Hamada emam was selected by default to that position while Abdel Hamid Shaheen was elected to the treasurer position. As for the board members, it consisted of: Dr. Ahmed Shereen Fawzy, Mahmoud Marouf, Mohamad Fayez El Zummur, Raouf Gaser, and Tarek Ghonaim. As per the rules, it was also new to have two members of the board under the age of 30. For these two spots, Samy Abo El Kheir and Ihab Ibrahim were elected. As for the appointed members by the high committee for youth and sports, Dr. Mohamad Amer, General Hanafy Reyad, and Farouk Abo El Nasr were added to the board. By 1994, Abdel Hamid Shaheen was not able to continue his duties due to his sickness, but the board chose to keep him in the position in honor of his devotion to the club, and thus Farouk Abo El Nasr was appointed to take the duties while keeping Abdel Hamid Shaheen in the position. In 1995, changes came to the board due to the court removal of four members in the board due to their absence from the board meetings for 6 times. These members were Mahmoud Marouf, Mohamad Fayez El Zummur, Dr. Mohamad Amer. The newly appointed members were Mortada Mansour, Mahmoud Abdallah, Mounnir Hassan, and Ibrahim Latif. Still the high committee for youth and sports objected on linking the appointed members with the elected ones and as a result Mounnir Hassan, and Ibrahim Latif forfeited their positions for the better good of the club and to remove any embarrassment happening to the board. And as a surprise, the newly two appointed members for the club board were Dr. Mohamad Amer and Farouk Abo El Nasr in support of their abilities and their dedication. As a result, Dr. Shereen Fawzy was selected to be treasurer till the new elections. On Thursday 4 July, came the decision by Dr. Abd El Menem Emarah to release the club board and the Egyptian Football Federation board after the sad incidence in the game between Ahly and Zamalek season 95/96, as the board decided to freeze the football activity in the club. Meanwhile, the EFF made a series of wrong decisions which caused it to be released too. As a result, a one-year temporary club board was selected of which Dr. Kamal Darweesh was the president and General Abd EL Aziz Kabil was vice president with the board members consisting of General Hanafy Reyad, Magdy Sharaf, Ismail Selim", Azmy megahed, and "Mohamad Abd El Rahman Fawzy.
