Things in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) are about to change.
The league has partnered with Hawk-Eye, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) provider for Major League Soccer (MLS), to implement the first-ever VAR system for a women’s domestic league.
VAR allows for the review of certain calls, including goals, penalties, and red cards.
It requires six camera angles, as well as extensive referee training.

The push for VAR comes after years of public criticism of the league’s officiating quality.
VAR reviews also will be shown in-stadium for fans to see.

Preseason began this week, giving a hard deadline for the deal to be finished.
“I’m beyond excited to enter the next chapter of my playing career with Gotham FC,” O’Hara said in a statement.
