The referees committee of the English Premier League recognizes the errors of “VAR” technology – today 24

The English Premier League refereeing body acknowledged on Sunday that VAR decisions to disallow a goal from West Ham and Newcastle this weekend were incorrect and promised “full cooperation” with the Premier League in reviewing the two incidents.

The Professional Match Officials Committee, The Professional Game Match Officials (PGMOL), took the rare step of “acknowledging” the controversial decisions in a statement issued on Sunday.

VAR decisions at matches are reviewed by an independent five-member panel consisting of representatives from the Premier League, the PGMOL Referees Committee and three former players. Their findings are sent to the respective clubs.

Controversy over denying West Ham a late draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, and another for Newcastle in a goalless draw with Crystal Palace, led the Special Committee to agree to further scrutiny.

“BGMOL has acknowledged incidents of two goals disallowed in Chelsea’s games against West Ham and Newcastle against Crystal Palace,” it said in a statement. We will cooperate fully with the Premier League and their request to review these two incidents, and will use the outcome as part of our ongoing weekly performance assessment and future match official development.”
