AFCON 2021: CAF Finally Reveal If VAR Will Be Used

Published

on

The organizers of the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon, have said the Video Assistant Referee, VAR, will be deployed.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) said VAR will be used during all 52 matches of the 2021 AFCON starting on Sunday.

The tournament begins on Sunday with the host country, Cameroon, trading tackles with Burkina Faso at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde.

The Olembe stadium will also host the final match of the 24-team competition on February 6.

CAF previously used VAR from the quarter-finals stage of the 2019 edition in Egypt, NAN reports.

However, CAF, in a statement, said VAR will be fully deployed during the tournament.

This move, according to the organizers, would help improve the image of refereeing and also produce world-class match officials in Africa.
