Russia: FIFA president comments on Video Assisted Refereeing and 2026 FIFA bidding

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said that he is «not at all nervous» about the Video Assisted Refereeing (VAR) because he believes there are «no negative effects,» when speaking to the press following Moscow's seventh meeting of the FIFA Council on Sunday. Infantino noted that «in those countries where VAR is being applied now, they can already not live without it.» At the meeting, FIFA's... Еще strategic body reportedly decided on a number of important competition matters, including the bidding process for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The FIFA president said, «I am happy or satisfied that we made sure that we had a real bidding process, transparent one from the beginning to the end. Everything is public, everything has been published.» He added, «I think we prepared everything for the Congress to be able to take the decision.» Following the publication of the Bid Evaluation Report by the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force, the FIFA Council designated the two bids — the one jointly submitted by the Canadian Soccer Association, the Mexican Football Association and the United States Soccer Federation, as well as the one submitted by the Moroccan Football Association — to be voted on by the 68th FIFA Congress. The decision will be made on June 13.
