The first workshop on experiments with video assistant referees (VAR) in football has taken place in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Leagues and associations interested in conducting The International Football Association Board (IFAB)-sanctioned experiments over the next two years saw the technology in action, with the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) demonstrating how their offline trials have worked during an Eredivisie match between Heracles Almelo and FC Utrecht on Thursday, 19 March 2016. During the three-day workshop, the competition organisers received further information about the requirements they will need to meet in order to take part.
