Conmebol to show VAR’s audiovisual records on its competitions

As it was officially reported by the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol), the entity decided to show audiovisual records of the exchanges made between referees and VAR’s team during its competitions. This way, according to the statement, fans will be able to know how the review of different plays during matches is developed, as well as conversations between referees and the video assistant referee. 

‘The VAR is a feature that has arrived to stay in international football, and that is why we need to adapt themselves, both referees, players and fans  and journalists, for the VAR to be used with the maximum transparence level. The possibility of accessing to audiovisual records will show how the review of a doubtful play is done from the moment the match is paused, until the referee takes his final decision’, said Wilson Seneme, Conmebol Referee Commission’s President. 

The measure will apply to all sporting events organized by Conmebol from now on.
