Premier League Fans Slam VAR In Poll, With Man Utd Supporters Disliking It Most

Premier League Fans Slam VAR In Poll, With Man Utd Supporters Disliking It Most

The BBC has released the results of a poll of football fans on their views of the controversial VAR system.

Unsurprisingly, it turns out that more supporters dislike the system than are in favour of it. 44% think it has made the game worse, while 30% believe it has improved football since its introduction.

Older fans are particularly against the innovation, with 59% of those over 55-years-old against VAR. Younger generations were more likely to like it, but still only 36% of those aged 18-34 thought it made the game better.

Meanwhile, it can be interesting to read into which fanbases are for and against the system.
