Alex Kotey said in an interview with Joy Sports that the delay in implementing the VAR system has been due to funding and FIFA introducing a different technology for African countries.
He added that Ghana is the only country from the WAFU Zone B to have started the VAR project since it was approved for use by FIFA.
“For me, I’m saying that, give and take, by 2023 we should see VAR in Ghana,” Kotey said in an interview with Joy Sports.
VAR was used in Ghana for the first time during the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff first leg game against Nigeria in Kumasi.
