VAR to be used at AFCON 2019


The Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has said that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will be used at the AFCON tournament.

But VAR will only be used starting in the quarter finals of the AFCON tournament.

Caf's Statement on VAR at Afcon 2019:

“VAR at the forthcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt will begin from the quarter-finals of the competition,” said Souleyman Waberi, Caf’s Referees Committee chairman, on Tuesday.

The Video Assistant Referee has  also been used in CAF officiated tournaments, African Nations Championship (CHAN) in 2018, and in the finals of the Total-Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup.
