FIFA continues the testing of video assistant technology during the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017 (20 May – 11 June), the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 (17 June – 02 July) and the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2017 (6 – 16 December). As an important part of the project FIFA confirmed the appointment of Hawk-Eye Innovations as the VAR technology provider. 

The announcement followed a comprehensive tender process, when interested technology providers were invited to submit their proposals. The relevant departments within FIFA examined the use of VAR technology during former trials at the FIFA Club World Cup 2016 in Japan and various tests done in international friendly games. The high quality of technology and the level of service were the decisive evaluation criteria at the end.
