EXCLUSIVE: SPFL are on the hunt for a VAR sponsor

The SPFL have promised to pursue a sponsor for VAR in a bid to lower the annual cost for cash-strapped clubs.

All 42 senior teams from the SPFL will vote on the introduction of video assistant referees next Tuesday.

In order to proceed, nine clubs from the Premiership need to be in favour, with eight clubs from the Championship and 15 clubs from League One and League Two granting their assent.

On Monday night, however, league chiefs were increasingly confident of a ‘yes’ vote to implement the system in the top flight after December’s World Cup finals in Qatar — and for the semi-finals and final of next season’s Premier Sports Cup.

With no sponsor currently in place, Premiership clubs have been told that the price they pay each year will depend on their final league placing.

Anticipated costs are estimated to be £1.4million, so charging all 12 clubs equally would mean an annual bill of £117,800 each.

With some clubs reluctant to pay that much, however, a briefing paper sent to them proposes charging clubs a percentage of their annual prize money relative to their league placing.

The winners of the SPFL would meet 16.29 per cent of the cost, equating to £195,751.
