The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system has been installed at the Baba Yara Stadium ahead of the crunch encounter between the Black Stars Of Ghana and Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The technology was successfully installed at the stadium by officials of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Thursday in preparation for the big game. Friday will be the first time in the history of Ghana football that the technology will be used.
The Black Stars are set to round up preparations for the first leg with their final training session and a press conference soon after. On the other hand, the visiting team Nigeria will train at the stadium at 7p.m after arriving in Kumasi earlier on Thursday.
To add to the excitement, CAF has approved Ghana’s request to admit 40,000 spectators for the match. This comes after the Ghana Football Association’s request to play the game in a full capacity stadium following the laid-down rules by CAF in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Things are gradually shaping up for feisty clash on Friday!
