Video assistant refereeing (VAR) will be used in the upcoming UEFA Champions League third qualifying round matches, which is the first time the technology is being implemented in a non-centralised phase of a UEFA competition.
UEFA works closely with the clubs and the respective broadcasters in charge of the TV production to deliver the VAR set-up. Each appointed video assistant refereeing team will also be directly at the venue in a dedicated video operating room.
