 ‘FIFA VAR’ Was Introduced In Village Football Competition In Imo State (Photos)

A Video Assistant Referee (VAR) was introduced during a village football match in Imo, Nigeria.

In the pictures shared to sources, the referee can be seen watching a television stationed close to the field.

Sources learnt that the television used as FIFA VAR was just to spice up the game and entertain fans.

The video assistant referee is a match official in association football who reviews decisions made by the head referee.

Following extensive trialling in a number of major competitions, VAR was first written into the Laws of the Game by the International Football Association Board in 2018.
