FIFA, football's global governing body, along with those bodies running the game at regional and countrywide levels are gradually introducing more technology into the game in a bid to assist referees, prevent incorrect decisions and enhance the game's image.
Yes: Technology is great for football
Anything to help referees get more decisions correct is a good thing.
The recent World Cup showed the difference technology makes
VAR and goalline technology at the 2018 World Cup in Russia worked well
VAR makes football fairer
More correct decisions leads to a level playing field for both sides
FIFA could and should use even more technology
Why limit technology to only key decisions? Use it for any decision where the referee has some doubt.
Y/N: VAR is now part of the game
Football has simply had to move with the times and FIFA must strike a balance
FIFA had no choice but to introduce video assistant referees
The governing body had to react following outcries over bad decisions in big tournaments
Technology is part of the game but it isn't perfect
There is still work to do to refine how technology is used during matches
No: VAR does not enhance the game
Football was fine without technology for hundreds of years. Why introduce it now?
Football does not need technology to prosper
FIFA's claim of minimal interference is flawed
VAR does not fit in with football match structure
Constant stoppages to review decisions are unwelcome distractions and could put people off
