The Football Association have joined the likes of the SFA, IFA, FAW and FIFA to vote in favour of the introduction of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR), according to BBC journalist Richard Conway.

The unanimous decision, which was reached by the sport's law makers in Zurich on Saturday, will see a number of amendments made to the existing laws of the game.

The new technology, which has already been tested in Germany and Italy throughout this season, could even be used at the World Cup this summer for the first time in a major international tournament - although an official decision is yet to be made.

La Liga have confirmed that VAR will be used in Spain next season, while its potential introduction in the Premier League next year is still unconfirmed.

The unanimous decision that has been reached by the various law makers across England, Scotland and Wales is sure to be met with a mixed reaction from supporters.


Although the jury still seems to be out over a general consensus for fans of the Premier League over the new technology, supporters in leagues where the tech has already been introduced have been vigorously protesting against VAR throughout the campaign.
