Some were stabbed and clubbed, while others were thrown off the stands or died in a crowd crush as they were trying to escape through a closed stadium gate in the back of the stands.  Hisham Sheha, an official in the Egyptian health ministry, said the deaths were caused by stab wounds, brain hemorrhages, and concussions.  Over 500 were injured.  At least 47 people were arrested after the clashes, according to Egyptian interior ministry.  Ahly coach Manuel José was kicked and punched by Masry fans while attempting to return to his locker room. He was afterwards taken to a police station. Both José and Mohamed Aboutrika reported that they witnessed Ahly fans die in the Ahly locker room.  As an immediate reaction to the disaster, Aboutrika decided to retire from football, along with other Egyptian international football stars Mohamed Barakat and Emad Moteab, while José seriously considered leaving Egypt and retiring from coaching football.
Egyptian Premier League: Al Ahly stunned by Al Masry as Zamalek and Pyramids gain ground with winsThe race for top spot in the Egyptian Premier League took a twist during Saturday’s action as all top-3 sides were in action at the same time during the evening. League leaders Al Ahly suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to an inspired Al Masry side, their first loss to the Green Eagles since 2016, allowing title rivals Zamalek and Pyramids FC to move within striking distance. An 8th minute cross from Masry’s Elyes Jelassi picked out fellow Tunisian Haythem Ayouni, whose bouncing header could not quite be kept out by Ahly goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy. Zamalek, while still having played one more match than their rivals, moved even on 31 points with a 1-0 road victory over Misr Lel Makkasa.
On 26 January 2013, Port Said Criminal Court, convening at the Police Academy in New Cairo for security reasons, issued preliminary death sentences to 21 defendants. A verdict against the other 52 defendants was postponed to 9 March 2013. There was an outburst of emotion from the families of the defendants when the judge announced the preliminary death sentences, requiring him to ask for order in the court several times.
 Video footage appears to show that the police were unable or unwilling to contain the attackers.  Eyewitnesses said that the police "did nothing to stop it", and "refused to open the closed gates" to allow the crowds to escape.  The bureau chief of the Voice of America in Egypt received reports that police opened the barriers separating the Al-Ahly and Al-Masry supporters.  Another witness said that many people were allowed into the stadium without tickets.  The New York Times reported that a major factor in the riots was retaliation on the part of the authorities towards the Ultras Ahlawy, who were actively involved in Tahrir Square during the 2011 Egyptian revolution protests and during Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) chairman Mohamed Hussein Tantawi's rule, as they kept chanting anti-government revolutionary chants in almost all Ahly games in the Egyptian Premier League.

com columnist Brent Latham described the riot as being politically motivated: It's been widely noted that the circumstances surrounding the riot are suspicious at best. The massacre came on the one-year anniversary of the storming of Tahrir Square by a group of pro-Mubarak counter-revolutionaries. It was directed at a group known for manifesting a liberal political agenda through support for a team founded in the name of historically disenfranchised workers and students. And it occurred at a moment when the interim military government has urged the citizenry to support the extension of emergency powers, and with the seeming complicity of law enforcement and stadium security.  Alleged political involvement Following the incident, anti-government political activists accused the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) and remnants of the old regime still in positions of power, asserting that the events were of a "counter revolutionary" nature.
Some parents fainted from shock.  The Ahly ultras celebrated the verdict by carrying out demonstrations praising the sentence in front of their club branch in Zamalek and demanding the conviction of officers who were involved in the disaster.  They then moved their demonstration to the Ministry of Interior headquarters to assert their demands of prosecuting the officers, resulting in clashes with the police who shot tear gas to disperse the protestors.
 Incident The match kick-off was delayed thirty minutes because Al-Masry fans were on the pitch. During half-time and after each of the three second-half goals for Al-Masry, the club's supporters stormed the pitch,  and at the conclusion of the match, thousands of spectators ran onto the playing field. Masry fans threw bottles and fireworks at Ahly players, who fled to their changing rooms under police protection. The Masry fans were armed with stones and some carried knives.  In the ensuing melees, 74 people were killed.
