The CAF Referees Committee has provided firm instructions to referees participating in the 2019 African Nations Cup. The CAF banned them from delivering public statements.
The CAF stated that they were providing suitable conditions for referees training. Arbitrators undergo practical lectures daily at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. Examinations for every referee is done separately to make sure they are properly prepared and have absorbed the training process.
For the first time in its history, Tunisia will be participating with five referees. Three out of five arbitrators will be ground referees.
