UEFA Looking to use VAR in the Champions League

VAR is here to stay, and after its successful introduction at the World CupUEFA is considering implementing it for the Champions League.

The European governing body are set to review a proposal that would allow the video assistance system to be used when there are eight teams remaining in the competition.

According to The Times, the proposal will be discussed in Monaco by the Club Competition Committee, and if everything goes according to plan it would be put up for approval by the Executive Committee on September 27.

Up until this point, UEFA hadn’t been keen to implement VAR for two reasons: the lack of referees with experience of the technology, and issues with some stadium infrastructure.

Due to this, the association have opted to propose its introduction starting from the quarter-finals.

At the moment, only eight of the major European leagues use VAR technology: GermanyBelgiumSpainFranceItalyPolandPortugal and Turkey.

VAR will be trialled in English this season in 60 FA Cup and EFL Cup matches.
