With few days to the start of the 2022 CAF Women’s Champions League, Nigeria’s top Referee Ndidi Madu has passed the mandatory fitness and medical test in Rabat, ahead of the CAF-organised tournament.
Madu is making a consecutive appearance at the CAF Women’s Champions League after she gave a fantastic performance last year in Egypt and remains the sole representative from Nigeria.
The referees announced by CAF were selected from twenty-three Nationalities, giving a good spread across the continent. Madu made history at the last Women’s Africa Cup Of Nations in Morocco, where she became the first Nigerian to experience and apply the VAR in a competitive encounter.
The tournament scheduled from 30 October to 13 November in the cities of Rabat and Marrakech, will see the technical contribution of 10 referees, 12 assistant referees, and seven video referees.
Meanwhile, The NRA has sent warm congratulations to the high-flying international woman referee, Ndidi Amaka Madu.
The Nigeria Referee Association, NRA, wishes the Amazon of the whistle and country ambassador to the officiating crew the best of luck and journey mercy
