“FIFA VAR” has been officially introduced in Imo State during the village football competition.
In the pictures shared to sources, the referee can be seen watching a television stationed close to the field.
Sources learnt that the television used as FIFA VAR was just to spice up the game and entertain fans.
The video assistant referee is a match official in association football who reviews decisions made by the head referee.
Following extensive trialling in a number of major competitions, VAR was first written into the Laws of the Game by the International Football Association Board in 2018.
