Premier League officials will stage their first “multi-match” top-flight trial of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) later this month.


VAR testing will take place simultaneously at all the 3pm kick-offs on September 15.

This is the day league chiefs will try to show they have the technological capacity, to deal with the workload posed on a busy Saturday schedule.

The games will be treated as a normal VAR game, but the assistants in the VAR hub will not have any communication with the on-field referee.

A Premier League source said referees have been encouraged by the use of the technology at three recent EFL Cup matches at Brighton, Fulham and Leicester.
