4 March 2018 Sports


Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is likely to be used at the 2018 World Cup after it won official approval from the International Football Association Board (IFAB).

The VAR is an association football assistant referee that reviews decisions made by the head referee with the use of video footage and a headset for communication.
