Fans got to hear how referees reach VAR verdicts as leagues and IFAB prepare for the future of refereeing


They could one day listen to parts of conversations between referees and VAR officials to help explain how key decisions are made.

At present, fans cannot hear the dialogue between the referee on the pitch and the VAR officials, with only the final result being transmitted to the supporters once the decision has been taken and the decisive images shown on television.

Nothing concrete has been decided yet, but it is understood that various leagues and stakeholders around the world are intrigued by the idea of ​​being able to hear the dialogue between the on-field referee and the VAR official.

It has been suggested that the conversations could be recorded and then broadcast on a half-time or full-time basis.

The International Football Association Board, the football legislators, are constantly looking for ways to improve the use of VAR and how they could do this was discussed at their AGM in June and also at the 11th meeting of the technical and football advisory groups last month.

A trial hearing of conversations between referees and VAR officials is not being organized at the moment, but it is something that could happen in the future.
