La Liga confirms VAR will Be used from next season


La Liga has officially ratified the implementation of Video Assistant Referees (VAR) from the start of next season.

The move had been expected, after comments from La Liga president Javier Tebas towards the end of 2017, but they confirmed that training had begun for first division referees on Friday.

La Liga will still need ratification from the International Football Association Board, which is meeting in Zurich this weekend to decide whether VAR will be used in this summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.

The Spanish Football Federation and La Liga will base their Video Operations Centre just outside Madrid in Las Rozas, a building project which had previously begun.
