In addition to fining the club for $ 20,000, because of the public shouting abusive and hostile.
During Al Ahly's match against Houria Guinean in the quarter-finals of the African Champions League, the Egyptian fans insulted Al-Sheikh.
Ahly was scheduled to play against Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia before skirmishes broke out between Al Ahly and Al Shaikh. Al Ittihad decided to use Zamalek.
In light of the desire of the Al-Sheikh to invest in sports in Egypt, and after skirmishes with the Board of Directors of Al-Ahli Club decided to invest in the stadium's new stadium Zamalek.
Under the criticism, Turki Al-Sheikh, who heads the Arab Football Federation, sent Zamalek on his own plane to Saudi Arabia for the Egyptian-Saudi Super Cup under the name of President Abdelfattah Sisi on October 6.
In the wake of the crisis, Al-Sheikh, chairman of the General Authority for Sport and the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee, and the owner of the club and the Pyramids channel decided to withdraw from sports investment in Egypt.
Saud al-Qahtani, advisor to the Royal Court of Saudi Arabia, said that "the cheers of some fans of the Egyptian club Al-Ahli against the adviser Turki Al-Sheikh does not represent Egypt and its people, describing the mobs."
Turki Al-Sheikh announced on May 24, 2018, his resignation from the honorary presidency of Al-Ahly Club in a move that is likely to come against the backdrop of differences between the two sides on the Argentine coach Ramon Diaz.
