VAR: Video assistant judge to be used in Premier League next season


How does VAR work?

Video assistant judges are set to be used in the Premier League next season, after clubs agreed in principle for the move.

The Premier League will now make a formal request to the International Football Association and FIFA.

VAR was used in the World Cup 2018, operates in Italy and Germany's highest divisions, and has been used in some FA Cup and Carabao Cup games.

The Premier League have conducted "non-living" attempts this season.

VAR will also be used in the Champions League from next season.

There have been growing calls for it to be introduced in the English airline flight for several years.

But in April, the Premier League clubs voted against what is being used for the 2018-19 season.

On Saturday, Southampton demanded Charlie Austin a change after he was denied a goal for offside against Watford, a decision he called a "joke".

Holy Chief Mark Hughes added: "All major sports have video reviews and for some reason, the Premier League, seen worldwide, is still in dark ages."

VAR has been tested regularly in a "non-living environment" in the Premier League this season, although matching officials have not been contacted by those who perform the trials.

Clubs received an update at a meeting on Thursday.

A statement from the Premier League said that the test program would continue for the rest of the season "with continued emphasis on Saturday afternoon having several games played at the same time".

How VAR decisions are announced to fans in the arena will also be addressed.

Former Premier League Judge Mark Halsey talks about BBC Radio 5 live's Afternoon Edition: "I think it's good. I know many people are against it, but we have to embrace it now and move on.

"We have seen this season a number of incidents that have been called badly, especially this weekend when there were a number of goals excluded when they should not have been.

"I think as long as we get the right education and education, and we get the right staff, that's the most important thing for me.

"Judges still want to go out and get the most important match decisions right, it's very important that the judges do not hide behind VAR – they will still make these big conversations correct."

What is VAR?

The theory behind VAR is simple: more accurate decisions, more often and at the most important points in matches.

The judge makes all the same calls, at the same speed and without help, as he would without the system in place.

However, VAR – a current or former top judge – is in place to control decisions on four types of incidents:

  • Objectives, including "missed" attacking crimes in the structure
  • Sanctions granted and not assigned, including "missed" attacking crimes in the construction
  • Direct red card
  • Case of wrong identity where wrong player is shown a red or yellow card

The referee can accept the information forwarded through his hearing of the VAR team, an option that is usually reserved for objective actual fact as if a player is offside.

Or, for more subjective decisions like red cards and penalty, he can review the playback on a TV screen on the page before deciding to change his first call.

The VAR team will also proactively contact the referee if they discover "a clear and apparent error" about these four types of events or a "seriously fatal incident" – usually violent violence.

The referee can then decide if you want a review or not – this is where the gig is officially heard and is indicated by the referee who shows the TV signal.
