#SPORTS: VAR planned to be in use in the next female world cup

Share This

It will be the first time VAR has been used at the tournament, having made its debut in the men's World Cup last year in Russia.
No senior women's domestic or international competitions use VAR.
The 27 referees and 48 assistant referees selected for the Women's World Cup took part in VAR training at a camp in Qatar last month.

The training was to gauge whether to use the technology at the tournament, with world football's governing body approving its use at a Fifa Council meeting in Miami on Friday.
The Women's World Cup runs from 7 June to 7 July and features 24 teams, including England, Scotland and defending champions the USA.
England head coach Phil Neville has previously said he is concerned about the standard of refereeing at the World Cup, adding it was "important" that VAR was introduced to women's football.
VAR is used in some men's domestic cup games in England and will make its debut in the Premier League from next season.

It is being used in this year's Champions League knockout stages, before being applied to the whole competition next year, while the Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga all use the system.
VAR is limited to four types of match-changing incidents - goals, penalties, straight red cards and mistaken identity.
After an incident occurs, the referee informs the VAR or is informed by them that it needs reviewing before the referee decides to review video footage on the side of the pitch or accepts the information from the VAR to make a decision.
