Premier League Clubs Vote On Scrapping VAR

Premier League clubs will on Thursday, vote on whether or not to scrap the Video Assistant Referee, VAR.

The clubs will meet at an annual general meeting.

Wolves are the club driving the vote having been hard done by numerous times.

The 2023/2024 season saw a host of high profile errors from VAR, including the failure to award a goal that was shown to be onside for Liverpool in their loss at Tottenham.

VAR was introduced ahead of the 2019/2020 season and still continues to split opinions.

The proposal needs 14 votes from the 20 clubs for it to change.

But according to the UK Mirror, Wolves will get nowhere near the required number with VAR set to stay.

The first point on the agenda at the Premier League meeting is the newly promoted clubs - Leicester City, Ipswich and Southampton - will officially be confirmed as Premier League clubs.

All three will receive their single share, giving them an equal vote on all matters.
