Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology is set to be introduced into the Premier League next season, it has been announced.

Top-flight clubs have agreed "in principle" to the move which will see the technology come in for the 2019/2020 season. 

During a shareholders' meeting, clubs were presented with an update on the non-live trials taking place, as well as "key learnings" from VAR's use in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup as well as from other leagues being discussed.

The League will now formally make a request to the International Football Association Board and FIFA to use VAR next season.

A statement from the Premier League said its testing programme would continue for the rest of the season, "with a continued emphasis on those Saturday afternoons which have several matches being played concurrently".

How VAR decisions are communicated to fans in the stadium is to also be addressed, with the development of a "clear protocol" to be established.
