Now it's official: VAR technology arrives in Serie B, not only in the playoffs and playouts but also in the league starting from the 2020-21
VAR and Serie B, here we are. After the League meeting held this afternoon, the assembly established the use of technological support for the referees will be present in the championship starting from the 2020-21 season, with 19 votes in favor (including that of the Cremonese) out of 21. After last year's experimentation, which saw the virtual assistant of the referees protagonist in the playoffs and playouts, the League decided that this season the Var will still be present for the play-offs, while experiments will be carried out during the championship days. The purpose of the latter, which lasted a year in Serie A, is to allow all the subjects necessary to get to know the system and install multiple cameras in the stadiums. Probably therefore that for each day of the championship there will be offline trials for 2-3 games, in preparation for the next Serie B year.
