“The on-field officials make an onside/offside judgment and that will be considered correct unless the VAR identifies, in their opinion from looking at the footage, a clear and obvious error. [It] will then be deferred to the match referee to make a final judgment by reviewing the footage at the pitch-side monitor.”
