Premier League clubs are pushing for a review into how Video Assistant Referee decisions are communicated to supporters inside the stadiums over fears it could see attendances fall.

At present two Premier League clubs - Liverpool and Manchester United - do not have big screens and are unable to show replays of VAR incidents.

"We immediately spoke to the Premier League and wrote to the Premier League and PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials Board) and said we were supporters of VAR, we're still supporting VAR, but we must absolutely protect the in stadium experience.

While clubs unanimously voted for the technology to be introduced to the Premier League, and still support the VAR, there are grave concerns over how it is being implemented at stadiums.

At present, VAR incidents will only be displayed to supporters at matches if the referees initial decision has been overturned, leaving many a fan confused as to what has actually occurred, or even if a check is happening.

Further analysis of the use of VAR is being undertaken before Premier League executives convene again during the November international break in order to discuss how best to improve its use, and protect fans in stadiums.

VAR has overturned 15 decisions in the first eight rounds of the Premier League season and referees have been encouraged to allow the officials at Stockley Park to advise on decisions instead of using the pitchside review screen, which would give fans further indication something was being looked at.
