VAR will be used at Russia World Cup, says Federation Internationale de Football Association

Posted March 19, 2018

FIFA's supervisory and strategic body approved the adoption of the most recent changes to the Laws of the Game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, as well as the detailed voting procedure that the 68th FIFA Congress will follow when deciding on the designation of the host (s) of the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The five existing stadiums that need upgrading are in Marrakech, Agadir, Fez, Rabat and Tangier.

"Perhaps Fifa wanted to stick to month of June as the time for the tournament", said an official of the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

VAR was already used in football tournaments in European countries, including the U.K., Germany, and Italy, according to British news outlet. That is part of the $12.6 billion in public investment that also requires hospital services being upgraded in 20 cities and transport networks improved for the World Cup after the jump from 32 to 48 participating nations.

"Our handsome and welcoming nation offers players and fans something very special with just one time-zone, one currency and all host cities are within a 550 kilometre radius from Casablanca, meaning limited travel and simple logistics".

"All host cities are also all located within an hour's drive of an airport, so players and fans need only focus on the one thing that matters most - football".

Morocco has mounted four unsuccessful World Cup bids, most recently for the 2010 tournament, while the United States was host in 1994 and was beaten in the vote for the 2022 event.

Soccer officials are expected to announce later on Thursday the final list of potential venues for the 2026 North American bid. Three cities were included from Mexico and Canada, who would stage 10 games each.

Morocco is the only challenger to the joint Canada, Mexico and US bid to stage the tournament.

"Today we approved the voting regulations that would lead to that decision".

Other cities not bidding on the world Cup are Chicago, Minneapolis and Vancouver, while cities like Los Angeles, New York, Mexico City and Montreal are still in the mix. "It's working and we have seen this in Serie A. Technology is better than the human eye".
