The other games can't have VAR can they as they are not set up with the technology; its only PL grounds, unless I'm mistaken?
Could someone please clarify

I believe this is correct.

Thanks Gayle!

I don’t understand why people are moaning then! It can only be used at premier league grounds!

I'm not an expert but I think it is more a case that they have set it up so they can only use it at Premier League grounds - Swansea for example were obviously a Premier League club last year and VAR was used in some of their FA Cup games last season so presumably the infrastructure is there if they had the appetite to use it.

As I said, they used it at two non-Premier League grounds in the League Cup this season - Middlesborough in the quarter-final and Burton in the semi-final. I believe they were in a truck outside the stadium for the Burton game rather than being at Stockley Park so presumably there are alternatives if necessary.
