The video assistance to arbitration (VAR) will be used during the CAN 2019, announced Wednesday, Issam Abdelfattah, chairman of the Referees Committee under the Egyptian Football Federation. However, it will be adopted in the quarterfinals of the continental competition.
Used by several continental confederations, this new technique, which is supposed to reduce arbitration errors, has been repeatedly pointed out, especially at the 2018 World Cup.
Remember that the draw for CAN 2019 will take place on April 4 in Cairo. It should be noted that 14 nations, including Morocco, have already secured their qualification. The competition will take place from June 21 to July 19 instead of June 15 to July 13, 2019, because of Ramadan.
