Video replays to help referees make key decisions are set to be used at this year's World Cup in Russia after the system was approved by football's rule-making body IFAB Saturday, a move that could fundamentally change the nature of the sport. IFAB unanimously agreed to approve the Video Assistant Referee system in arguably the biggest change to the game since the abolition of the back pass in 1992 .FIFA President Gianni Infantino said a final decision on using VAR at the World Cup would be taken at a council meeting to be held by the global football body on March 16 .However, that is expected to be a rubber-stamping decision as Infantino has repeatedly promised that VAR will be used at the June 14-July 15 tournament and has made it one of his priorities since being elected in February 2016 .
