The video assistant referee has been first introduced during the 2016 Club World Cup in Japan and since then it has been used in several competitions, most notably the FA Cup, the Bundesliga and the Serie A.

During the 2018 World Cup Team Workshop that took place earlier this week in Sochi, FIFA board members discussed whether or not video assistant referee should be used during the major tournament.

Finally on Saturday morning after meeting in Zurich, the International Football Association board announced that VAR will be used next summer in Russia.
