Rio de Janeiro - The Brazilian football confederation has
confirmed it will test a video assistant referee system for the remainder of
this season's national cup competition.
The VAR will initially be used in all four quarterfinals of
the Brazilian Cup on Wednesday and Thursday.
The confederation said on Monday the total cost of
implementing the system for the 14 remaining matches would be $200 000. The
quarter-finals, semi-finals and final are all played over two legs.
Five people, including a representative of the
confederation, will operate the VAR from a special room in every host stadium.
