The team working on the VAR is following up on the issue, and on the other hand, it must be within the framework of FIFA-approved companies. Their conditions must be considered, and implementation in our country needs its own work. The work is complicated, but our friends in the federation are following the work and it is not possible to announce a time in this regard.
