NYON, NNC - European football's governing body (UEFA) has confirmed the use of assistant referees videos (VAR) in next season's Champions League and also for 2020 Euro.

The UEFA Executive Committee approved the use of VARs in the qualifying rounds, group stages and the knockout stages of the Champions League next season.

"We believe the introduction of VAR in August 2019 will give us enough time to implement the system and train referees to ensure success in the Champions League," UEFA chairman, Aleksander Ceferin said.

Previously at a meeting in Monaco last month Cerefin had initiated the idea of VAR.
