London: Television replays to assist referees will be used for the first time during the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.

Video assistant referees (VARs), who will be given access to all broadcast feeds inside a video room, will be able to advise the on-field official of errors in "match-changing" situations. The referee will then be able to review footage on a pitch-side monitor for certain decisions, which is a key progression from the 'semi-live' tests conducted at recent international friendly matches in Italy.
