Have your say on VAR

The Premier League has launched a VAR consultation with players and managers, but we believe one vital component is missing from that selection – match-going supporters.

We are launching a survey which aims to pull together the opinions of fans throughout the country on the implementation of VAR, to examine fans’ experiences with it, and the areas that need improvement.

The results of our survey will be fed into the Premier League consultation as part of our regular meetings with the game’s authorities. It’s vital that the fans’ view is heard on one of the game’s biggest issues.

Stadiums have, of course, been largely empty for the past 12 months, so while we are asking those of you who have experienced VAR in stadiums to give us your feedback, we are also interested in your opinion as TV viewers.

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.
