French Ligue 1 to Introduce VAR in 2018/19 Season

French Ligue 1 to Introduce VAR in 2018/19 Season

The French Ligue 1 will become one of the top flight leagues to introduce the Video Assistant Referee, VAR next season.

The board of the Ligue de Football Professional on Thursday voted in support of the bill that will see the new system used in the 2018/2019 campaign of Ligue 1 just like La Liga would too.

That means that a center referee will have to review a video footage in the case of goals, penalty calls, straight red cards and mistaken identity for bookings or dismissals.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) must endorse the use of video technology before the LFP can implement the video assistant referee system permanently. IFAB is expected to deliver a verdict at its annual meeting in early 2018.
