Cameroon: Var used in all 52 Afcon matches in Cameroon - CAF


All 52 games of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, which kick off on Sunday in Cameroon, will be accompanied by video assistant referees.

The match kicks off with the hosts from Cameroon against Burkina Faso at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde.

The final of the 24-team competition will be played on February 6 at the same location.

The organizer, the Confederation of African Football (CAF), previously used VAR from the 2019 edition of the quarter-finals in Egypt.

However, CAF has fully leveraged the world-acclaimed innovations in 2018.

He is expected to help improve the image of referees and also to create staff for world class games in Africa.

63 match officials were appointed for the match, including referees Salima Mukasanga (Rwanda), Karine Atemzabong (Cameroon), Fatiha Jermumi (Morocco) and Buhra Karbubi (Morocco).

The list consists of 24 referees, 31 assistant referees and eight VARs, all from 36 countries.

The list includes two CONCACAF arbitrators as part of the inter-confederation skills exchange programme.
