FIFA President, Sepp Blatter
African football's most successful nation is nearing rock-bottom, amid concerns that they could be suspended by FIFA.
The domestic league has been disrupted since February, following a deadly riot in Port Said, reports the BBC.
Fans have threatened to prevent the league's resumption unless there is a change of leadership within the Egypt Football Association.
And it is plans for change which has come to the attention of FIFA.
Hani Abou-Reida was seeking to become the EFA's new president, with elections to be held next month.
But a court ruling has since prevented Abou-Reida from running for office, suggesting he is ineligible having served as an EFA official for two consecutive terms.
FIFA takes a dim view of any government interference but is currently just watching and waiting.
A FIFA spokesperson told BBC Sport: "At the time of writing we can confirm that FIFA is monitoring the situation in Egypt, though no further decisions have been taken with regard to the Egyptian Football Association."
