FIFA to use Hawk-Eye video review system in three tournaments

A Video Assistant Referee system.

FIFA has chosen the Hawk-Eye Innovations video review system to help referees at three tournaments this year.

World football's governing body has said the British firm will work at the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea from Saturday as well as the Confederations Cup in Russia and the Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

At least 11 technology companies were in trials with FIFA last year, although the decision announced Friday appears to favour Hawk-Eye for the 2018 World Cup if a contract is awarded.

At the 2014 World Cup, Hawk-Eye lost the goal-line technology contract to German system GoalControl.

FIFA wants video review only for potential "clear errors" in four situations: goals scored, penalties awarded, players sent off and cases of mistaken identity.

Video review must still be formally approved by football's rule-making panel, known as IFAB, which is working with leagues to introduce Video Assistant Referees (VARs) ahead of likely approval for the 2018 World Cup.

In Russia, FIFA could opt for VARs working at the stadium as part of each referee's support team.
