Croatian Football Federation has fulfilled all the necessary requirements to introduce VAR technology into Croatian football.

Croatian Football Federation has completed all the activities and referee education steps in order to introduce VAR technology - funded through FIFA Forward Programme - into Croatian football. During the process, 11 VARs, 13 AVARs, 16 referees and five replay operators have been fully educated.

Referees' Committee president and VAR project manager in Croatia Ante Kulušić has provided IFAB and FIFA with the final documents, including competition permission request. Upon approval, VAR technology can be introduced.

"Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this demanding, extensive project. I would also like to express my gratitude to Croatian Football Federation and FIFA for their uttermost support. A lot of funds, hard work, and time has been invested into VAR education, and we expect a positive reply from IFAB, in order to start using VAR technology following the winter break - just as it was planned", said HNS vice-president Kulušić.
