FIFA has confirmed that a video assistant referee will be used at the 2018 World Cup.

World football governing body, FIFA, has revealed its plan to commence the use of Video Assistant Referee, VAR at the 2018 World Cup. The announcement was made by FIFA President, Gianni Infantino on Wednesday. “We will use video refereeing at the 2018 World Cup because we’ve had nothing but positive feedback so far.” Infantino was quoted in a statement.

Video assistance was introduced to support referees with “game-changing” decisions. It was tried last December in Japan during the Fifa Club World Cup.
