No VAR In The Premier League For This Reason (READ)

Premier League Warn Fans To Expect VAR Controversy Next Season, Interim Premier League chief executive, Richard Masters has admitted that the introduction of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will bring controversy.

No VAR In The Premier League For This Reason, The Premier League will not use video assistant referees in 2019-20 to rule on goalkeepers moving off their line to save a penalty.

Three penalties have been retaken at the Women’s World Cup after VAR ruled keepers did not have at least part of one foot on the goalline.

Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) will leave such decisions to on-field officials.

PGMOL could review the situation during the season.

VAR will be used in the Premier League for the first time during 2019-20 but there are no plans to use it in Scotland’s Premiership next season.
