Football lawmakers are looking to adapt the use of VAR in the Premier League to help improve the unpopular system, according to reports.
VAR has gone down like a lead balloon since its inception this season with football fans complaining of a lack of clarity during the decision-making process as well as long waiting times.
According to Sky Sports, lawmakers are looking into ways to improve VAR and are considering making the decision-making process audible within the stadium.
This would enable supporters to hear the conversation between the team of referees watching the various replays from screens in Stockley Park and the match official.
A similar system is already in place for intentional Rugby Union fixtures, and football lawmakers are hopeful this could help explain dubious decisions in greater detail to reduce fan-frustration and disappointment.
Ex-referee David Elleray recently gave his opinion on how VAR has been implemented so far this campaign, and admitted improvements need to be made.
But many lessons have been learned and those lessons will be put into place next year. I think we’ve been aware, over the last four years or so, of VAR that any competition that has started using it it hasn’t always gone well at the beginning. They’ve adjusted, they’ve modified.
Should lawmakers decide to make the VAR process audible, then every Premier League club will broadcast conversations on their loud-speaker systems.
