The KNVB is considering how decisions of the Video, Assistant Referee (VAR) to follow for the spectators in the stadium to sit. Now it is for the public is often unclear to which situation it is.

“Look at Ajax-AZ. There was a penalty reversed because in the run-up to the penalty kick offside is detected,” says Mike van der Roest, on behalf of the KNVB is involved in the project with the VAR, Friday against the NOS.

“The VAR is for a penalty and not offside?’, people wonder now. That’s right, but the penalty kick was not awarded for offside was flagged. Such a case requires explanation. I think we all have to have some patience to have before everyone is aware of how the VAR-protocol works.”
