Leicester City and Ipswich Town critical to ‘very close’ VAR vote – sources

Leicester City, Ipswich Town and potentially Leeds United will have a huge say in the Premier League vote over whether to scrap VAR this summer, which sources have told Football Insider will be “very close” and go down to the wire.

The ‘Big Six’ clubs led by Liverpool, Man United, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham originally pushed hard for VAR to be introduced from the start of the 2019-20 season and they are now expected to stick with the technology.

 

The vote was triggered after Wolves formally submitted a resolution to the Premier League, with all 20 member clubs set to share their stance on the issue at the annual general meeting on 6 June.

A top Premier League source has told Football Insider the final outcome could come down to how the newly-promoted sides vote, with Leicester City and Ipswich Town already confirmed and the third place between play-off finalists Leeds United and the winners of Friday’s semi-final between West Brom and Southmapton.

Any potential rule changes need 14 clubs to vote in favour of the motion.
