VAR conversations in La Liga and Spanish Super Cup to be made public

Madrid: Conversations between the on-field referee and video assistant referee (VAR) in La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup will be made public at the end of each matchday starting January, the Spanish football federation (RFEF) said on Tuesday.

The new initiative will be launched on January 10 with the Super Cup semifinal between Real Madrid and Altetico Madrid.

It will be used in the La Liga from January 12 onwards.

“The RFEF and La Liga have agreed to start publishing the images and audio of the conversations between the on-field referee and the VAR officials following a VAR review and the use of the pitchside monitor,” the RFEF said in a statement.

The moved was aimed at “making refereeing in professional football and the competitions themselves more transparent”.

“The fans’ experience will be improved and a better understanding of the refereeing decisions will be appreciated by the viewers,” the RFEF added.
