Lausanne (AFP) – A trial period for the video assistant referee (VAR) system could be extended beyond next year’s World Cup, football’s lawmakers said Thursday, despite FIFA’s vow to include them in Russia 2018.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has said “nothing is standing in the way” of the technology for next summer’s competition, but a spokesman for International Football Association Board (IFAB) told AFP the ongoing experiment could be “prolonged”.
