The African Cup of Nations will use video reviews for the first time at this year’s tournament, from the quarterfinals onwards.

Hassan Waberi, the chairman of the Confederation of African Football referees committee, says the African body will go ahead with the technology in Egypt after consulting with FIFA and UEFA.

FIFA approved VAR for last year’s World Cup in Russia and it will also be used at the European Championship next year, the first time for that tournament.

Waberi, speaking during a visit to Djibouti by CAF president Ahmad, says African referees attended a recent VAR training camp in South Africa, are currently at another in Morocco, and will have a final training camp in Egypt before the African Cup kicks off June 21.
