The Scottish Professional Football League has confirmed that there will be a vote on Tuesday 19 April on whether to introduce VAR to the cinch Premiership.
The SPFL has circulated a resolution to all 42 member clubs, who will be asked to vote on its introduction at the SPFL General Meeting on that date.
The resolution requires 75% of cinch Premiership clubs, 75% of clubs in the cinch Championship and 75% of clubs in cinch Leagues 1 and 2 combined to vote in favour.
If the resolution is passed, the target implementation date for VAR will be following conclusion of the Qatar World Cup 2022, which takes place between 21st November and 18th December this year.
Whilst the introduction of VAR will have a significant impact on the football club both directly on field and financially, the board of directors and first-team manager are keen to hear the thoughts of supporters on this potential significant change to the game in Scotland.
Whilst there is lots to consider for the football club internally, this addition to the game will have an undoubted impact on the spectator experience and as such, hearing your thoughts on this is important to us and although we know the general consensus will be varied, we’re keen to hear from you to get a better grasp of what fans see as the pros and cons of such a development.
You’ll see a simple twitter poll with a Yes or No option on our official account (@LiviFCOfficial) but if you have further thoughts or views that you wish to share with us, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org where your thoughts will be passed on to the board and first-team manager ahead of the vote on April 19th.
