By Sampson Adedeji

Ahead of 2019 Africa cup of Nations, Confederation of African fFootball has approved the usage of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for the competition.

The continent soccer governing body through its president confirmed the usage during his visit to Rwanda.

He explained that the VAR will not be used during the group stages of the competition because of the lack of logistics and capacities to operate the system.

CAF views that there will be need for the system as the number of participating teams has being increased from 16 to 24 teams.

The tournament is slated for June 21 to July 19, 2019.
