The White Knights finally succeeded in ending the eight-year dominance by bitterest rivals, Ahly, who lost out on the title race after a 1-1 draw against Smouha 24-hours earlier.
With that, Zamalek were certain to be crowned champions the next day and they lived up to the billing, beating Army team, Geish in a five-goal thriller to give their fans a double cause for celebration.
Four minutes from the break, Hashem made amends for his earlier blunder before leading
marksman, Bassem Morsy restored the two goal lead of Zamalek tapping in on 74 minutes, his 18th strike of the season.
Islam Kamal reduced the deficit for Geish in stoppage but it was not enough to stop Zamalek from celebrating their title feat on a winning note.
With a game to spare, the White Knights have 86 points, eight more than Ahly, and both sides will represent Egypt in next year’s CAF Champions League. Overall, Zamalek have won the Egyptian league 12-times, but still falls short of the 36 titles by eternal rivals, Ahly.
The rivals, involved in the second-tier CAF Confederation Cup, currently sit top of their respective groups and remain in a good position to qualify for the last four.
Meanwhile, El Gouna, Al Rajaa, Al Nasr, El Assiouty Sport and Alaab Damanhour which finished the bottom of the 20-club league in that order have been relegated from the top flight.
