After a delayed start of the competition due to player suspension by federation (see full details of the conflict) which led to cancellation of the cup final of the previous season (1943) sharing cup between Ahly and Zamalek, suspension was lifted on 19 April 1944, Allowing for a month preparation for all teams then competition started, Ahly reached final after beating Tanta in R1, Canal Police in R2 & Cairo Sekka in SF, While Farouk "Zamalek" reached final by beating Ithad Suez, Olympic then a walk-over vs Masry who withdrew protesting cairo as a Venue

Final was played on 2 June 1944
Zamalek's name at that time was Farouk refuting old misbelief that Zamalek's Name was changed from Mokhtalat to Farouk following that victory as a reward from King Farouk who attended the final
