Egyptian campuses and soccer emerge as flashpoint in resistance to President Al Sisi

By James M. Dorsey

Soccer fans exploiting stadia as contested public space emerged more than three years ago as a key force in anti-government protests that toppled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and opposition to subsequent military rule.
