0

The Ghana Football Association (GFA), has begun the process of implementing the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), technology in domestic competitions.

It is unclear when exactly the technology will be rolled out, but it is likely to be within the next three years.

“VAR is coming to Ghana, but there are a lot of work that we need to do to ensure that VAR comes to this country., GFA Referees Manager, Alex Kotey said in an interview with GFA News.

“FIFA is saying that, by the next 3 years, VAR must go to all member associations and so member associations must begin to accept this concept and let it become part of our football.

“So, in the project planning, there are so many requirements that FIFA will demand from us which is in line with the club licensing regulations and so there’s nothing to fear. After the project planning, there’s another requirement where you have to engage the various stakeholders, like referees who are the main actors of this program.

Morocco, South Africa and Egypt are currently the only African countries that use VAR in their domestic competitions.
