FIFA talks to potential video replay sponsors for World Cup

LONDON (AP) A FIFA executive says video replays will be used at the World Cup for the first time and talks are underway with potential sponsors to appear when the technology is used.

Soccer's rule-making panel was meeting Monday to assess recent trials ahead of video assistant referees (VAR) being officially approved by FIFA for use in Russia in June and July.

FIFA chief commercial officer Philippe Le Floc'h tells The Associated Press that "definitely VAR will happen. I think it's great to have technology in football because this is also a fair(ness) thing."
