The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has obtained the authorization of the International Football Council (IFAB) to use the technique of Video Assistance to Arbitration (VAR) during the semifinals of the 2018-2019 Throne Cup .
This is the match between Difaa Hassani Jadidi at Tihad Athletic Sport on November 9, 2019 in Tangier and the one to be played between Hassania from Agadir and Moghreb from Tetouan on November 10, 2019 in Marrakech, the FRMF said in a statement.
The Kingdom of Morocco thus becomes the first country on the African continent to use the VAR technique in local competitions, the same source said.
The Central Commission of Arbitration, presented at a meeting of the steering committee, held last Monday at the headquarters of the Federation, a presentation on the final preparations for the application of the technique of Video Assistance to Arbitration (VAR) semi-finals and final of the 2018-2019 Throne Cup.
