  • FIFA Council approves open vote for 2026 World Cup

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has been a vocal advocate of VAR for some time, regularly voicing his support for the developing use of the technology and consistent in his opinion that the 2018 World Cup should be its grand premiere.

Federation Internationale de Football Association also said that Ifab had approved the rule change enabling teams to make a fourth change for games that go into extra time in the Finals in Russia.

"We wanted to give the referees tools so they can make better decisions, and in the World Cup some very important decisions are made".

VAR was already used in football tournaments in European countries, including the U.K., Germany, and Italy, according to British news outlet.

And these amendments are the "use of video assistant referees (VARs) in all matches; one additional substitute per team in matches that go into extra time and permission to communicate information and transmit data to the technical area for coaching purposes".

The body made the decision to approve the technology following the results of an independent analysis conducted by Belgian university KU Leuven.

But how does VAR work, and why are we using it?

If understood from the theoretical perspective, this should help reduce the changes of a country being sent home early due to bad calls - a possibility given the mess that happened at the last World Cup.

"I think we should seriously be looking at the World Cup as a point of leverage", he told BBC Radio 4.

"The intervention of VAR takes one minute on average in each game. We have complete faith in the head of our referee committee Pierluigi Collina and his team, extraordinary professionals who will prepare referees for the World Cup". "I think we should do other trials in other tournaments, analyse them well, and then put it in place".

However, Fifa added that they can not "yet" agree to a request from the Iraqi authorities to organise matches in the capital of Baghdad.

FIFA's ban covered all matches but domestic ones and stayed in effect following the 2003 war in Iraq that led to the downfall of the regime of Saddam Hussein.
