Sound of Football Podcast 292 - Rise of the VAR

The use of technology in football is something that this podcast has always viewed with a suspicious eye. Now, however, following a groundbreaking decision last year, the Video Assistant Referees (VARs) are on their way whether we like them or not. So is it time for us to embrace change and look forward to the new age of technologically enhanced decision-making?

Graham, Terry and Jan take a long look at the information material being produced by FIFA and IFAB (which as Jan points out, looks like an in-flight safety card). They go through the processes step by step, all the while looking at the benefits but equally any potential pitfalls.
