AIFF looks to implement VAR in Indian Football, earliest in 2025/26 season!

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) are looking to implement the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology in domestic club football.

“There will be a big decision on the introduction of VAR very soon. We are doing a study on that,” AIFF acting secretary general M Satyanarayan told PTI in an interview. “Introducing it next season might be difficult for the simple reason that FIFA has to approve the technology, there is a process. More than just getting the equipment, training of personnel takes a lot of time.”

“It can be 2025-2026 season, but you never know. Even if we start now (the process), it will take a minimum of 18 to 20 months (to complete it),” added Satyanarayan

The federation is aiming to implement the VAR technology earliest in the 2025/26 season across the Indian Super League and I-League, but questions remain in regard to the overall implementation of VAR, who all have to share the costs, the training of VAR officials and getting the necessary equipment.
