Football: in Türkiye, Var entrusted to foreign referees in “high stakes” matches

This Friday the Turkish Football Federation made a strong announcement via a press release! During high-stakes matches, she will designate the referees in charge of VAR. These latter will be foreigners.

An announcement which comes after the leaders of Fenerbahçe, currently second in the championship two points behind its sworn enemy Galatasaray, publicly questioned the integrity of Turkish referees last week. “A foreign video assistant referee (VAR) will be appointed for critical matches from the 32nd day of the Süper Lig until the end of the championship,” the TFF said in a press release.

Assistance to video refereeing (VAR) will thus be led by foreign referees for the away matches of Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray on Sunday and Monday, as well as for the meeting on Saturday between Ankaragücü and Gaziantep, decisive for the maintenance of the two teams in the first division. The TFF specifies that it has concluded an agreement with the Italian, Spanish, German, Dutch and Portuguese federations.
