CAF workshop on VAR to take place in South Africa

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) will embark on a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Workshop from March 26-30 in South Africa, for a select number of referees from around the continent.

The VAR System was implemented in 2017 at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in South Korea and had great success at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. It will now be implemented on the African continent.

This system was designed to assist the referees with decision making during matches.

CAF have embarked on a mission to ensure that Africa is well equipped with modern day football innovations and technology as part of the new leadership of president Ahmed.
