The Confederation Of African Football (CAF) has decided to adopt Video Assistant Referee (VAR) from the group stage of the Champions League 2021-2022, according to the Egyptian press.
CAF had previously decided to establish it from the quarter-finals, but it could not materialized.
Ghana Premier League Champions and winners of the competition, Accra Hearts of Oak will be the first Ghanaian club to experience the technology if they are able to get into the group stage.
The Ghanaian champions are two good performances away from their first group stage appearance since 2006.
They face Wydad Casablanca, who are reigning Moroccan champions and reached the semi-final of the last two seasons Champions League.
Coach Samuel Boadu has brought faith into the team ever since he was appointed, and the continental club masters will be hoping to reciprocate what they did last season in the Ghana Premier League today.
The first leg will be played in Accra on Sunday, October 17 with the return leg scheduled for Casablanca next weekend.
