FIFA excludes countries using VAR from World Cup referee list

1522312401_08fcc

Federation Internationale de Football Association has officially announced that the 2018 World Cup hosted by Russia next June will witness the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

From now until the World Cup in June, the chosen referees, the assistant referees and the VARs will be supervised and supported by the FIFA Arbitration individually to ensure they be fully prepared.

There will be no British referees at the World Cup for the first time in 80 years when the tournament takes place in Russian Federation this summer.

Only 10 referees are representing Confederation of African Football (Caf) affiliated countries.

In choosing the referees, world football's governing body will account for experience with the technology in domestic leagues, FIFA competitions and FIFA refereeing seminars since the beginning of the VAR project in 2016. Other AFC assistant referees are from the Bahrain, the UAE and Japan.

Çakır along with two Turkish assistant referees, Bahattin Duran and Tarık Ongun, made it onto the list of officials selected by the FIFA Referees Committee.

VAR technology will be making its debut at the World Cup and has been used on trial basis at major European leagues including English Premier League and Bundesliga to mixed reactions.

The last time Egypt had a referee featuring at the World Cup was in 2006, when current board member Essam Abdel-Fattah was selected to officiate at the quadrennial tournament.

But his money-spinning move to Saudi Arabia left no English referees on FIFA's World Cup list for the first time since before the second world war.

Europe will be represented by referees from Germany, Turkey, Russia, Holland, Poland, Spain, Serbia, Italy, Slovenia and France.

Also, no English assistant will officiate at the competition.
