VAR in Africa: Morocco becomes first African country to use the new technology

Morocco became the first African country to employ the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in its domestic matches.

The technology was first used in the continent in the Africa Cup of Nations in June from the quarter-finals onwards, and various countries were said to be keen on employing the technology in local leagues. 

Morocco became the first to use the technology in the local Throne Cup semi-finals match between TAS Casablanca and Difaa El Jadida that was played on Saturday.

Casablanca won the match 1-0 in extra time after regulation time failed to yield a winner.

Last week, a committee from the International Football Federation Board (IFAB) visited the Marrakech Stadium to look at the VAR set-up.
