VAR test in 2019-20 Iran Pro league season

Iran Pro league referees committee announced that VAR will be deployed in some matches of the competition in 2019-20 season.

After introducing VAR in football big tournaments, Iran league have decided to use it in the domestic campaign but FIFA have not accepted the local version of VAR. In fact, Iran league wanted to use local version of VAR to decrease the costs but International football federation rejected it.

So the new season has started without this cutting-edge technology but now the referees committee has decided to test it in some matches to prepare the situation for the next season.

Some of the best referees in Asia like Alireza Faghani who has officiated in World cup semi-final, are in Iran league but the competition always is full of controversial decisions.
