Football VAR rule change
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Dear Football fans around the world,
We have all seen our favourite teams being wronged by referees even after the implementation of the VAR technology, so I leave you with the email I have sent to FIFA which is self-explanatory:
After the controversy that has accompanied the VAR technology since its first implementation and especially during the ongoing FIFA World Cup, I hereby wish to submit my suggestion to make the VAR use more "fair" and would highly appreciate it if you could look into my suggestion as I have tried to contact the Moroccan Federation to convince them to put my suggestion through - as per your requirements - but I have not been able to reach them.
My suggestion is; just like in Tennis, each of the two teams will have the right to challenge a decision three times per match. Once a team calls for a challenge, the referee should then consult with the VAR. If the VAR proves that the team got their challenge right, then they will still have three challenges remaining, if not, then they lose one challenge. Once all of the three challenges have been incorrectly used, the team can no longer challenge anymore unless the match prolongs to 120 mins in which case both teams will have one additional challenge which will be added to their already remaining challenges. If a team uses the challenge explicitly to waste time, the concerned disciplinary body can investigate the matter and punish said team depending on the FIFA general laws.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the referee will still have unlimited access to the VAR to use whenever he feels he needs to.
I would be very grateful if you could take my suggestion into consideration or else I shall start a wide signature-collecting campaign and make a fuss about it and be a very annoying thorn in your side which would eventually harm your already hampered reputation. You have the chance to give the teams the equality they are looking for, I strongly advise you to take it.
If you support my idea, I urge you to sign it, share it and send an email saying that you support Abdellah Sekram's idea to FIFA on their email:
