A video assistant referee(VAR) was introduced in a village football competition in Imo State. 

In the pictures shared, the referee can be seen watching a television stationed close to the field.

Igbere TV learnt that the television used as FIFA VAR was just to spice up the game and entertain fans.

The video assistant referee is a match official in association football who reviews decisions made by the head referee. Following extensive trialling in a number of major competitions, VAR was first written into the Laws of the Game by the International Football Association Board in 2018.
