Premier League clubs vote against officially introducing the Video Assistant Referee system

English Premier League rejects VAR next season Premier League Clubs Vote Against VAR Use for 2018/19 Season in Favour of Further Testing

"Premier League Clubs have today agreed to continue advanced testing of Video Assistant Referees (VAR) throughout the 2018/19 season", a statement read.

The decision was made at a Premier League shareholders meeting in London on Friday, when all 20 top-flight clubs voted.

IFAB technical director and former Premier League referee David Elleray said 40 countries were using, trialling or interested in VAR technology.

'The clubs agreed that advanced testing on the use of the video technology will continue to the end of 2018-19.

Premier League clubs have voted against using VAR on a full-time basis from next season, with trials set to continue.

Europa League: Arsenal play Atletico Madrid in semi-finals
CSKA Moscow scored two goals before Elneny distributed a magical pass to Danny Welbeck , turning the result to 2-1. Two-weeks from now, Arsenal play the first leg of their Europa League semifinal tie with Atl├ętico Madrid .

They will carry on the experiment next season with more VAR games in cup competitions and the possibility of it being used in the Premier League as a trial run with the results not being used.

Clubs especially want improvements in communication inside the stadium and for TV viewers.

"The only experience I had was the West Brom game and it was very interesting". It's not ideal at the moment. And of course, controversial decisions will always happen in football. It's one you can debate all day.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has said that VAR will be used at this year's World Cup tournament in Russia after the system was approved by soccer's rule-making body IFAB. Then again, that's how it's been forever, so we'll be happy to note the wisdom of getting it right.

VAR is already being used in some leagues, including the Bundesliga, and will be at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer. "There is already a lot of confusion", said UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, who insists that VAR will not be used in next season's Champions League.
