VAR Technology In Football

VAR : A new revolutionary system or another worthless invention?

If you have watched a Bundesliga, Eredivisie, Serie A match this season, you have probably noticed a novelty in the world of football; VAR (video assistant referee)

Introducing VAR You know those close calls in Basketball or Hockey where referees are forced to watch the reply on a screen and then make the right decision.

Well, VAR is just about that, only in football.

I’ll walk you through the whole VAR process in just four simple steps.

  1. A referee spots on an arguable situation or is seeing something but is not 100% sure.
  2. Through headphones, he communicates with specialists who are watching the reply from different angles.
  3. Under those circumstances, the referee can entirely rely on what they are seeing, or he can choose to look the video for himself and make a conclusion.
  4. Make the final decision.

And you know what?! Research shows that VAR is doing remarkably well since its debut. But what does implementing a new technology speaks about the direction our beautiful game is going?

For and against VAR

English Premier League and French Ligue 1 representatives took this step much more carefully compared to others and are not entirely convinced by the aid of VAR.

The fear of football losing the charm is what drives those associations into re-thinking this whole process. Above all, fear of change is a significant factor when deciding for or against VAR technology.

On the other hand, isn’t justice in sport what we are all seeking for? Even if that means watching a reply video, pausing the game and nervously waiting for the final decision.

What do the fans think?

Surprisingly, most of the fans look at VAR as a perfect way to get to the right call even if that puts their team on the losing side of the decision.

Of course, it will take time for us, fans, to get used to anxiously waiting for the referee’s decision while biting our nails and hope for the best.

But hey! If VAR makes us sleep better after a terrible defeat or a glorious victory knowing that only a right call decided the outcome of the match go out and do it. Even the best tipsters in the world also use the technology to help develop winning soccer tips.

To sum up, VAR looks like inevitable addition in the future of football, and like it or not we’ll soon have to find a way and live with it!
