The International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) has today approved the use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for the Women’s World Cup later in France this year.
This decision was made after the FIFA Referees Committee recommended the use of the technology to enhance decision making at the global showpiece especially following it’s success at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
