Premier League clubs vote to use VAR from 2019-20 season
Premier League clubs have agreed in principle to introduce video assistant referees (VAR) from next season onward.
The competition has held off introducing VAR, even as it has been used in other top leagues, including Spain, and by FIFA at the World Cup.
The Premier League's 20 clubs decided to introduce VAR at a meeting on Thursday, pending approval from the International Football Association Board and FIFA.
Earlier on Thursday, Asian Cup organisers said VAR would be used at the Jan. 5-Feb. 1 tournament starting in the quarterfinals.
Referees will be able to assess replays in seven games in Dubai, Al Ain and Abu Dhabi.
