AFCON 2019: CAF Takes Final Decision On Use Of VAR

The Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will make its debut in this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed.

However, the latest technology in refereeing will be applied from the quarter-final games.

“We’ve taken all measures and tested offline for a backup to the VAR. The referees are concentrating to make everything possible for the system to be implemented successfully.

“We took the risk and until now it worked very well until we have some difficulties and we assure they will not be repeated,” CAF’s Deputy General Secretary, Anthony Baffoe said on Friday.

The VAR has previously been used in the CAF Interblubs finals, after its successful implementation during the CAF Super Cup in 2018 between Wydad Athletic Club (Morocco) and TP Mazembe (DR Congo) in Casablanca.
