English Premier League rejects VAR next season

VAR will not be used in the Premier League next season

The International Football Association Board (Ifab) is expected to approve VAR when it meets in Zurich, in time for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Despite football's lawmakers giving it the thumbs up and the system being used at the World Cup, English Premier League clubs have voted not to use video assistant referees next season.

Premier League officials want the system to be implemented for FA Cup and League Cup matches again next term.

'The clubs agreed that advanced testing on the use of the video technology will continue to the end of 2018-19.

The decision was made at a Premier League shareholders' meeting in London on Friday, when all 20 member clubs voted.

The 2017-18 campaign has seen the on-field referee consult with a colleague regarding key decisions in FA Cup games and the Carabao Cup final, with mixed results.

The major teething problem in VAR's use during this season's FA Cup, as well as in other competitions around Europe, has been a lack of communication in the decision-making process for fans in the stadium.

The Clubs recognized and are grateful for the substantial developments made by PGMOL Managing Director Mike Riley and his team. "We are all agreed it took a little long for all decisions..." It's not ideal at the moment.

"I stick to it - I really would prefer we have the right decisions but it needs to be fixed before that".

"It can not be possible that in 2018 everybody, in the stadium or at home, knows in a few seconds if the referee has made a mistake but not the referee himself - not because he doesn't want to know about it but because we forbid him to know".

VAR has been used across all matches in Serie A and the Bundesliga, but England's top-flight clubs have decided not to follow suit just yet, and the system will continue to be tested in 2018-19.

UEFA, European football's governing body, has still to be convinced, however.

Germany and Italy introduced VAR across their top leagues this season.
