VAR to make Africa debut in Wydad Casablanca vs TP Mazembe

The Confederation of African Football has disclosed that the Video Assistant Referee [VAR] will be used for the first time in Africa during the 2018 Caf Super Cup tie between Wydad Athletic Club and TP Mazembe on Saturday. Following series of offline tests at the recently concluded African Nations Championship in Morocco, Caf confirmed that the International Football Association Board (IFAB) and FIFA have approved the use of the technology at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca. Following the successes during the offline sessions at the CHAN, I’m optimistic that we are ready to use VAR in major CAF competitions,” Eddy said.
