FIFA seeks more VAR involvement in football, Assistant Referees role threatened


Football could see further sweeping changes after it was revealed that FIFA are exploring the possibility of replacing assistant referees with VAR technology.

As first reported by The Mirror, football’s international governing body have set up a new department to discover whether technology could be used further in football.


The linesman’s role has been identified as a potential area in which technology could come into use.


If the findings of the new department are favourable, football could see a three-man on-field officiating party reduced to just one.
