The UEFA could wait no longer: VAR is still this season, entered in the Champions League

The videoscheidsrechter (VAR), this season introduced in the Champions League, more specifically, from the eighth-finals. That the European Football association (UEFA) Monday decided, after the meeting of the Executive Committee in the Irish capital, Dublin. Also in the finals of the Europe League (may 29, in Baku, azerbaijan), during the Final Four of the Nations League (in June in Portugal) and at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS U21 (in June in Italy and San Marino) the referee will be able to rely on the videoref.

Would normally the videoarbitrage only from next season, are entering the kampioenenbal, but UEFA has now decided there already started, “after successful testing and the training of refs in the past few months”.

“We are now ready to start the VAR earlier than planned-to-use”, declares UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin. “We are convinced that this will be good for our competitions, it is a valuable tool for the refs and will provide less erroneous decisions.”
