FIFA announced the new development,revealing that the replays will not be shown inside the ground while the referee is making a decision, only afterwards so the official is not influenced by the crowd.

The crowd will also be told when a decision is being reviewed and why a decision has been reached.

VAR has been trialled in some domestic English cup games this season, as well as in Germany and Italy, while FIFA  confirmed in March the system would be used at the World Cup, starting in June.
