The Egyptian Premier League is an Egyptian professional league for Egyptian football clubs and represents the top flight of Egyptian football. The championship consists of eighteen competing teams in a home and away league system. It is currently known as the Presentation Egyptian Premier League, after the advertising company signed a sponsorship deal with the Egyptian Football Association. The league's highest attendance is 120,000 (Al Ahly vs Zamalek).
The five most popular Egyptian clubs are Al Ahly, Zamalek, Ismaily, El-Ittihad and Al-Masry. Also there is a historically significant club named Tersana.
A total of 66 clubs have played in the Egyptian Premier League from its inception in 1948–49 up to and including the 2017–18 season.
