Premier League Clubs to vote on scrapping VAR

Premier League clubs will be asked to vote on the possible abolition of Video Assistant Referees [VAR] for next season after a proposal tabled by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The proposal is due be heard at a shareholders' meeting on June 6.

Sky Sports News understands that the Premier League board is directly opposed to the proposal.

The Premier League recognises Wolves' right to make such a proposal, but they feel abolishing VAR would lead to many more incorrect decisions.

Premier League stats earlier this season showed that correct decisions had increased from 82 to 96 per cent under VAR.

Meanwhile, Premier League officials believe the proposal would seriously impact it reputationally as one of elite leagues in world football and would mean no semi-automated offsides or in-stadium announcements to the crowd that the top flight is pushing hard for.
