The Africa Cup of Nations is expanding to 24 teams and moving to a summer event in 2019. Cameroon will be the hosts of the first expanded African championship in two years time.

MLS has announced the official start date for Video Assitant Referees. The system will make its competitive league debut on August 5 for the first slate of games after the MLS All Star Game. It will be used to review goals, red cards, penalties, and cases of mistaken identity. MLS is the first top tier league to adopt an instant replay system, but it's been used in international friendlies and the 2017 Confederations Cup to mixed reviews.
