Earlier today, the Football Supporters’ Association published its initial findings from a survey of over 33,000 fans, the largest consultation of its kind on VAR.
In his role as a Premier League representative on the FSA National Council, Foxes Trust board member Steve Moulds is taking a lead role in the VAR working party who carried out the survey
There were clear messages from the fans taking part with 95% of those who had experienced VAR in-stadium and 94% who had watched matches on TV said that VAR had made watching football less enjoyable.
The initial findings are published on the FSA website Survey: Fans say they will attend fewer games because of VAR – Football Supporters’ Association (thefsa.org.uk)
Sky Sports News ran an extensive piece about the survey throughout the day and published an edited version on line, with Steve being interviewed https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/12322848/var-survey-fans-unhappy-with-how-its-working
The Working Group is continuing its work over the summer and aims to discuss the findings with the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) who are the body responsible for match officials in English professional football.
