From 18-20 May 2016, a workshop on video replay experiments is taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Competition organisers that are interested in running experiments with video assistant referees (VARs) have been invited by The International Football Association Board (The IFAB) to learn more about the experiments and see the technology in action.

In this video, Secretary of The IFAB Lukas Brud and FIFA’s Head of Football Technology Innovation Department Johannes Holzmüller provide further background information about The IFAB’s decision to allow such experiments as well as details on the workshop itself, which is hosted by the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB).
