VAR could be scrapped as part of Project Restart

According to the Mirror, FIFA have permitted the Premier League to scrap VAR as part of Project Restart.

Lawmakers IFAB have sent out two key changes. the first to allow a maximum of five substitutes during matches and second to stop using video technology. (h/t Mirror)

However, the Premier League is keen to continue using VAR. They have even factored officials and operators into the numbers allowed for behind-closed-doors. There were concerns as to how social distance could be maintained at Stockley Park but are confident of being able to overcome that and remain committed to VAR. (h/t Mirror)

Tottenham Hotspur have benefitted by VAR

The topic will be discussed at Monday’s meeting with all 20 Premier League clubs. It would not require a vote for them to stop using VAR after IFAB’s amendment. (h/t Mirror)

Tottenham have benefitted following the introduction of video technology in decision making. We have seen six major decisions ruled in our favor over the course of the season.

Significant ones include Gabriel Jesus’ late goal at the Etihad and Son Heung-Min’s penalty at Villa Park. It is fair to say we would have been worse off had it not been for VAR. Although we have seen a number of decisions also go against us, you can argue that we have still benefited by comparison.
