Video Assistant Referees

Football lawmakers will review Video Assistant Referees (VARs) and concussion at a technical summit. Questions arising are whether VAR is staying in football. 


According to football lawmakers, there is always room for improvement.

While this may be true, IFAB will review the latest report on how VAR has been used in the football world.

IFAB officials have remained tight-lipped about further developments. The meeting will mark the beginning of a process that could lead to a law change being implemented.

IFAB includes the four British associations. In detail, they will have to watch VARs introduction with close interest.

After a predictably contentious introduction to England’s top league this season, it will be fascinating to see whether IFAB technical director and former referee, David Elleray proposes any tweaks.

The concussion

UEFA wants IFAB to introduce temporary head injury substitutes. According to UEFA, head injury substitutes should be similar to those used in rugby union to avoid complications associated with concussion.

On the other hand, proposals have been made on the same. This includes a mandatory 10-minute test. This is contrary to the current three-minute assessment.

IFAB wants to ensure enough time and expertise are dedicated to finding the best solution for the game.

According to new research, former players are three-and-a-half times more likely to die of dementia than people of the same age range in the general population.

“One of the things we are pushing on and I’ve spoken to FIFA and UEFA about is to introduce concussion substitutes as quickly as possible.” Said FA Chairman Greg Clarke.
