Just a review of how our first 2 VAR games went (if you have read the article I linked to on the general discussion board this is taken from it)

 In the first game – Paks v Mezőkövesd Zsóry, Berke Balázs was referee and has some VAR experience in UEFA matches. In this match the VAR was very smooth and intervention/disruption was minimal. VAR intervened at 45+5 with a penalty subsequently being awarded from a missed indent during a corner. Although all 5 goals were automatically reviewed only the 5th goal, was reviewed noticeably. It was an excellent introduction and was on par with how VAR worked at the Euros. If we can set this as the standard in Hungary then I don’t think anyone will have any complaints. Well done Berke Balázs and the VAR.

In the second game – Gyirmót FC Győr v MTK Budapest, it was not as smooth. Rookie referee Zierkelbach Péter was the on-field referee. This was his first live match with VAR. To be fair to Zierkelbach Péter he had other significant issues in the game with the floodlights failing and causing several delays. Several times during the game there were only two floodlights working fully, one not working at all and one on about half light to what it should have been and at one point none were working and a drinks break occurred during that period to help lessen the delays. It appeared to be a local issue as the apartments behind the ground had no lights either although street lights seemed to be working. In VAR terms in the 36th minute there was a VAR review for a possible red card, following the review the original yellow card stood. In the 54th minute there was a VAR goal review for possible handball. The goal stood there was no handball offence as outlined in the Laws of the Game. In the 88th minute there was a review for a possible red card, this one took a while (2-3 mins). Following consultation with the VAR, Zierkelbach Péter carried out an of-field review and determined that his original decision to issue a yellow card was incorrect and he withdrew the yellow card and issued a red card. Three major VAR reviews – two confirmed the original decisions and one, using an on-field review, corrected a decision from yellow card to red card. Although not as smooth as in the first game, it was not hugely interruptive apart from perhaps the on-field review, however as this prevented an incorrect decision being made it worked just as it should. Well done Zierkelbach Péter and the VAR.

General Discussion / VAR

Well VAR has landed in Hungary! Not too bad on the first day to be fair.

The MLSZ have released an excellent video showing the training process that our referees have undertaken. The interviews with the referees are in Hungarian but you don't need to speak the language to see the extensive training involved. I'm sharing because it's informative and quite interesting.

I have done an article in English on it here. I do need to tidy it up a bit but I'm too tired now! I may or may not get round to doing so!!

If you want to skip the article and just see the video:

Why would you automatically assume a GB ref would be there?? The appointment are done by FIFA. All the male refs are on the list for the 2022 World Cup.
