The Nigeria Football Federation has announced plans to install Video Assistant Referees (VAR) in regional stadiums across the country.
It also disclosed that plans are underway to train and retrain referees to achieve the purpose.
The President of the federation, Malam Ibrahim Gusau, disclosed this on in Ilorin at the National Elective Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Referees’ Association (NRA) over the weekend.
Gusau, represented by an NFF official, Malam Muhammed Ameenu, charged the incoming leadership of the association to come up with development plans, to forecast, organise and ensure the future of Nigeria referees are properly nurtured and watered towards the growth of the game.
While reiterating the unflinching support of the NFF to NRA in its quest to change the face of football in the country, Gusau said the installation of VAR is to ensure the growth and development of football.
