UEFA says fans at Euro 2024 will be given more detailed information on video assisted refereeing (VAR) decisions than before.

The head of UEFA’s refereeing committee Roberto Rosetti who disclosed this on Wednesday – said screens at stadiums across Germany will provide “technical explanations” of VAR calls in order to improve spectator understanding.

One of various criticisms of VAR technology since its widespread introduction has been the difficulty match-going fans have in understanding why certain decisions are made.

Rosetti said referees will be able to give explanations to the captains of the teams they are refereeing while other players challenging decisions or demanding information would be cautioned.
