“Premier League clubs were today provided with an update on plans for the introduction of VAR in the competition next season. This included details on in-stadium communications, in particular when there is a clear delay to a match because of VAR, and when refereeing decisions are over-turned due to the intervention of VAR. The Premier League has created graphics which will be displayed on giant screens to explain any VAR-related delay to a match, and any over-turned decision.
“Additionally, if the VAR believes there is a definitive video-clip which helps explain an over-turned decision to fans, it will be broadcast on giant screens. In addition, the Premier League is investigating the possibility of messages and video-clips being viewed on handheld devices via an app. For clubs which do not have giant screens in their stadium, VAR communications will be made via a combination of PA announcements and messages on scoreboards.”
