Dec 16, 2017-

French football’s top division Ligue 1 is set for video assistant referees (VAR) next season after several club chiefs revealed that they had agreed in principle to adopt the technology. “Video technology will be in Ligue 1 next season,” said the president of Giungamp Bertrand Desplat after Thursday’s general meeting of the French football league (LFP).  “If everything goes well, we should start at the beginning of next season,” added the president of the French Football Federation Noel Le Graet. The VAR has been used since the start of this season in Serie A and the Bundesliga, and will be introduced to Spanish La Liga next season.
