Liverpool will oppose Wolves calls to scrap VAR

Liverpool support VAR's continued use in the Premier League next season despite calls from Wolves to scrap it.

It is understood that the Reds want the system to continue and improve.

Another top-flight club have also indicated their support for VAR when contacted, but wished not to be named at this stage.

The early expressions of backing for VAR follow Wolves submitting a resolution on Wednesday calling for a vote to scrap the system at the league’s annual general meeting.

Wolves’ supporters trust has also called on fans of other teams to lobby their clubs in an effort to scrap it.

"VAR has taken the enjoyment out of the game we all know and love with such little benefit," the Wolves 1877 Supporters Trust said in a post on its X account.

"We now back all supporters trusts of Premier League clubs to come together to ensure their clubs vote in favour of removing VAR and giving us back our game."

Meanwhile, it is undestood there will be no discussion or vote among Championship clubs about introducing VAR into the second tier next season.

Witnessing the Premier League’s experience is understood to be a factor that has contributed to a collective lack of enthusiasm among Championship clubs, along with cost considerations.

The Football Supporters’ Association posted details of its summer 2023 survey on Thursday morning, which included questions to the respondents around attitudes to VAR.

It found only one in 20 (5.5%) of fans who had experienced VAR in stadiums rated their experience of it as good or very good.

Almost two-thirds (63.3%) were against its continued use, with 91.9% criticising the length of time taken to make decisions and 95% saying the removal of spontaneity from goal celebrations was a chief concern.
