FIFA briefed coaches on Wednesday on how video assistant referees should operate at this year’s World Cup.

All that’s required now is official approval of VARs for the June 14-July 15 tournament in Russia.

Although some trials have created additional confusion in recent European club games, soccer’s most significant adoption of technology is set to be formally voted into the laws of the game by a FIFA-led body on Saturday.

Even ahead of the vote by the International Football Association Board, FIFA President Gianni Infantino has already said that VARs must be at the World Cup to eradicate errors on the game’s biggest stage. FIFA has also been searching for a sponsor whose branding could appear when the video reviews are in action. And the governing body spent time during a a pre-World Cup workshop in Sochi this week to inform coaches from the 32 teams that how the procedure will work when referees seek guidance from the VAR or check replays themselves on a pitch- side monitor.
