On Sunday, the LOC revealed a street footballer named Tut who displays the Egyptian culture as the mascot.
Tut is a 12-year-old child wearing an Egyptian shirt and a pharaonic outfit and has his foot on the official ball for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Egypt will open the tournament with a fixture against Zimbabwe at the Cairo International Stadium on June 21.
