It has been revealed that video refereeing is set to be introduced at the 2018 World Cup after a trial last December in Japan.
Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA has revealed on Wednesday that video assistant referees will be used at next year’s World Cup in Russia for the first time.
According to Agence France Presse, Infantino revealed this at a congress of the South American Football Confederation in Santiago, Chile.
He said: “We will use video refereeing at the 2018 World Cup because we’ve had nothing but positive feedback so far.”
Video assistance was introduced to support referees with “game-changing” decisions for the first time in a FIFA competition at the Club World Cup in Japan in December.
