Premier League clubs agree on VAR from next season
Premier League clubs have agreed in principle to introduce video assistant referees (VAR) from the start of next season, they said on Thursday.
The top leagues in Spain, Italy and Germany are already using VAR, which allows disputed incidents to be reviewed with the use of video replays, and
the technology was used at the World Cup in Russia this year.

"The League will now formally make a request to the International Football Association Board and FIFA to use VAR next season."
I assume this means that they believe approval will be rubber-stamped. I also wonder what circumstances it will be used in.
