Premier League Ask Clubs How To Improve VAR System

11 March 2021

Reaching out to managers, captains and 20 clubs, one of the world’s best football leagues are in search of feedback on VAR with the hope of implementing improvements for the 2021/2022 season.

The controversy caused by Premier League’s VAR system hasn’t gone unnoticed after a rocky season full of various questionable decisions.

Making headlines earlier this week, Manchester City’s Phil Foden was punished for his honest behaviour against Southampton on Wednesday evening.

The role of VAR in decisions such as marginal offside, challenges inside the penalty area and serious foul play will be examined, although handballs will not be re-assessed.

With the season nearing an end, the survey will be sent out later this week and will remain open until March 19th.

What are your thoughts on VAR, is it changing football for the better or worse?
