The four defendants from "Ultras Ahlawy", a group of supporters of Egypt's number one Al-Ahly soccer team, have also been accused of inciting violence and vandalism during Al-Ahly's match with Gabon's Monana in the African Champions League earlier in March, Xinhua reported.
Some of Al-Ahly fanatic fans reportedly launched fireworks, broke some of the stadium's seats and chanted anti-police statements during the match.
Only some matches including foreign teams are allowed with a limited number of spectators in Egypt's stadiums.
In June 2017, an Egyptian court sentenced eight of Al-Ahly fans to two years in prison over charges of inciting riots and holding illegal protests to mark the fifth anniversary of Port Said deadly clashes.
Earlier in February last year, Egypt's top Court of Cassation declined an appeal and confirmed death sentences for 10 defendants over murder-related charges in the 2012 soccer riot tragedy.
In the same case, another 10 defendants were sentenced to 15 years in prison, 10 to 15 years, 15 to five years and one to one year, while 21 defendants were acquitted.
