Video Assistant Referee in MLS


Recommended Posts

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system becomes part of MLS officiating. FC Dallas thought they had clawed a goal back. Maxi Urruti reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box, and found the back of the net to give the Texans a lifeline against the Philadelphia Union. Replays showed that Cristian Colman made contact with Philadelphia goalkeeper John McCarthy before Urruti took his shot.

Of course - like every new technology implementation - there will be challenges along the way.

Personally, I think video replay was long overdue in soccer and that it will contribute to the sport in the US. How do you feel about it?

For your viewing pleasure, this historic first follows...

I'm positive about the VAR. Only thing is that the fans should be informed better about what is going on. Rugby has a lot of experience with the VAR. There the main ref decides what happens and he explains what he is doing and what his dicision will be if this or that observation is made
