Federation Internationale de Football Association have announced that the controversial video assistant referee (VAR) system will be used at the World Cup for the first time ever.

FIFA World Cup, which takes place from June 14 to July 15 will experience the video replay which will judge various important aspects during the games like crucial goal-line decisions, important penalty calls, and red cards.

According to the Phoenix Business Journal, Phoenix is not among the 23 cities announced Thursday for the North American World Cup bid.

"It's an essential, important and historic decision, based on the meeting of Ifab two weeks back".

"The VAR is helping the referee and we are going to have a more transparent and fairer game, and that's what we want".

Infantino said no one on the Fifa Council was against the decision, and added: "We didn't take it lightly".

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has supported the idea of boycotting the 2018 FIFA World Cup (June-July) to be held in Russian Federation.

Saturday's news conference revealed details of Morocco's bid book, which was presented to FIFA on Friday, with the central theme being making their football infrastructure sustainable after the tournament and keeping down construction costs.

"The FIFA World Cup 2026 is a national priority for our Government and that is why it has guaranteed the required investment in our exciting and innovative stadium plans".

"United as one, Canada, Mexico, and the United States are excited and ready to welcome players, officials, fans, media and partners to a truly global celebration of football that unites the world around our common values of humanity, friendship and mutual respect".

Stadiums would be built in Oujda and Tetouan organisers said, and new arenas to fit around 46,000 fans are planned in Casablanca, Marrakech, El Jadida, Meknes, Nador and Ouarzazate with the intention of downsizing them to unspecified capacities after the World Cup.
