Unusual what will happen in the English league on June 6. The 20 Premier clubs will vote on whether to eliminate the VAR system starting next season (2024-2025). It is a measure that has advanced TheAthletic and which requires the affirmative vote of 14 of the 20 representatives in the general assembly that will take place at the beginning of June.

VAR, which has been used in the English league since 2019, has generated a lot of controversy in English football. Wolverhampton presented the proposal to abolish the VAR and reinforced it with a statement explaining why it is taking this decision to the assembly for the support of the other clubs: “There is no one to blame, we are all simply looking for the best possible outcome for football, and all interested parties have been working hard to try to make the introduction of additional technology a success. However, After five seasons with VAR in the Premier League, it is time for a constructive and critical debate about its future. “Our position is that the price we are paying for a small increase in accuracy goes against the spirit of our game and, as a result, we should eliminate it starting with the 2024-25 season.”.

The VAR has garnered countless controversies in England since its implementationalthough one of the most striking occurred this season when the video referee did not come in to correct a goal that was disallowed to Luis Díaz in a -Tottenham match. A scandal that went around the world and forced the referees and the Premier to recognize a blunder in decision-making from the VOR room.

The vote will take place on June 6 and the affirmative vote of 14 of 20 clubs is needed. The Premier has already confirmed that it is committed to continuing with technology and that it will seek improvements for and for the good of football and its fans. The implementation of the Champions-style semi-automatic offside system is underway to avoid the mistakes of the past.

If the measure to eliminate the VAR is approved, The Premier would follow in the footsteps of Sweden, which remains the only one of the 30 best leagues in the world whose clubs have flatly refused to implement VAR.
