EPL Effects New Changes To VAR Ahead Of 2021/2022 Season

Video Assistant Referees (VAR) in the Premier League will begin using ‘thicker lines’ in matches next season to determine marginal decisions, according to Sky Sports.

This agreement was reached at the annual general meeting of clubs on Thursday, where there was a presentation by Professional Game Match Officials Limited [PGMOL] referees’ chief Mike Riley.

The PGMOL is hoping the change will give advantage to the attacking team, following a VAR feedback from Premier League clubs last season.

It is however not confirmed if the thicker lines for offside will be used for FA Cup ties next season.

Football lawmakers, the International Football Association Board [IFAB], do not specify a maximum thickness of lines, under the laws of the game.
