Zamalek of Egypt ready to represent Africa in the Club World Championship

Zamalek players celebrate the victory at the African Club Championships

Cairo, Egypt, October 31, 2009 - The Zamalek Volleyball club of Egypt is fully prepared for its first ever appearance on the international stage when it represents Africa in the 2009 FIVB Men’s Club World Championships in Doha, Qatar which starts on Tuesday before finishing on the 8th November.

The reigning champions of the Men’s African club championships held last May will finish their last preparation camp in Russia on Saturday before going directly to Doha, Qatar to participate in the Club World Championships.
The camp included some friendly matches where the head coach Ahmed Moustafa tested all his squad to put at work his strategy for the Club World Championships.

The Egyptian champions added two players - opposite spiker Mohamed Gabal and the middle blocker Ahmed Ali El Sheikh - to their star studded team. The two stars of the Egyptian national team will add a lot to the team that won the African Club Championships in Cairo last May after defeating their arch rivals Al Ahly in the final.

Zamalek have four African titles to their name as well as many national team players who won the African Nations Championship in Morocco last month for the third consecutive time like veteran setter Ashraf Aboulhassan, middle blocker Mohamed Ali, and two strong attackers in Saleh Fathy and Mohamed Abdel Moneim.
Zamalek will play in Pool A of the FIVB Men's Club World Championships along with Trentino Betclic of Italy, Zenit Kazan of Russia and Corozal of Puerto Rico
