Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Ma­jor League Soc­cer will be­gin us­ing video re­view for all matches Aug. 5. MLS has been test­ing the sys­tem at matches through­out the first half of the sea­son. The league an­nounced Thurs­day that it would be im­ple­mented fol­low­ing the All­Star game in Chicago on Aug. 2. All matches will now in­clude a video as­sis­tant ref­eree, who will be al­lowed to re­view video to con­firm calls in four sit­u­a­tions: goals, penalty de­ci­sions, di­rect red cards and cases of mis­taken iden­tity. MLS and the Pro­fes­sional Ref­er­ees Or­ga­ni­za­tion have worked to de­velop the video re­view sys­tem in ac­cor­dance with pro­ce­dures set forth by the In­ter­na­tional Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Board.
