The Football Federation postponed the draw ceremony for the Premier League's new season indefinitely pending security approval.
The Football Federation, headed by Gamal Allam, was planning to hold the draw on Tuesday afternoon so that the tournament could begin 26 December, but security approval has been delayed.
The 2012 football season was suspended after the February Port Said Stadium massacre that killed 72 Ahly Club fans. The 2013 season was also put on hold after the 30 June protests. Matches scheduled for the past year were carried out in army stadiums.
