Premier League Clubs have voted en masse to decide the fate of VAR in next season’s campaign, MySportDab reports.

The just-concluded 2023-24 season was a hotbed of VAR controversies. From disallowed goals, mistaken offsides, wrong penalty decisions, and poor foul decisions; the list is endless.

With the immanent conflicts and controversies surrounding the football technology, Wolves and a few other Premier League clubs moved a motion for the technology to be scrapped in the upcoming 2024-25 campaign.

On Thursday, June 6, a decision was made in that regard as Premier League Clubs voted massively on whether to continue with the technology or drop it in the next campaign.

As confirmed by BBC, the majority of the Premier League Clubs voted that the VAR should be maintained next season.

Only a few clubs raised objections, citing the difficulties and challenges that has emanated from the use of the technology. Despite its attendant shortcomings, the majority of Premier League clubs believe it is better to continue with the technology than do away with it.

Liverpool led the list of clubs who were hit by a controversial VAR decision to chalk off one of their goals during their Premier League match against Arsenal.

Arsenal’s match against Newcastle United was another flashpoint of conflict over VAR’s controversial decision to award a goal to Newcastle United even when the ball seemed to have gone out of play.

So many other cases led to fallouts. It is understood the Premier League are making moves to adopt a new technology that will complement VAR with quick and more correct decisions.
