It’s Official, the Video Referee will be in Place at the World Cup in Russia (and in Ligue 1 Next Year)

FOOTBALL: The IFAB registered this Saturday the use of the video referee in the laws of the game of football…

This time, it’s sure. The video in football is done. The IFAB, the body that manages the laws of football, validated this Saturday the entry of the use of a video refere in the game of football. And this from the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The video will be mainly used for four game situations:

1 / Goal or not goal

2 / penalty or penalty

3 / red card or not

4 / an error of identity on a player



France was waiting for this decision from the IFAB to bring the video in definitely in his football. Starting next season, the VAR will be introduced in Ligue 1. “The use of a video referee has been tested on more than 1,000 matches since 2016,” the IFAB said at its congress.
