VAR adapts new change

The controversial Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system is implementing 'thicker lines' to decide on tight decisions.

According to Sky Sports, the VAR authorities will improve their officiating with what will be a benefit to attacking teams when determing offside calls.

"Premier League video assistant referees are set to use 'thicker lines' in games next season to determine marginal decisions, Sky Sports News has confirmed," the outlet reported.

"An agreement to use thicker lines, originally reported in The Times, followed a presentation by Professional Game Match Officials Limited [PGMOL] referees' chief Mike Riley to clubs at their annual general meeting on Thursday.

"The PGMOL hopes the change will give the benefit back to the attacking team after Premier League clubs gave feedback in a VAR survey last season," the report added.

Meanwhile, the UEFA Euro 2020 kicks off on Friday in Rome as Italy take on Turkey.
