FM confirmed that new features will drop throughout the day, with the following information being announced on the official forum.

"FM19 sees the introduction of two pieces of video technology that have been used in the real world in recent seasons. The first of these is Video Assistant Referees or VAR, which will be included in competitions that make use of the technology in reality." the official Sports Interactive Community forum revealed.

"There are two types of VAR - one where the referee uses a TV screen by the side of the pitch to assess the original decision and one where the referee communicates with the Video Assistant Referees via an earpiece.

"Again, the type of VAR you see when playing is dependent on how it is used in the real-life competition."
