The Turkish Super Lig will assign foreign Video Assistant Referees (VARs) for crucial games until the end of the season, the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) said on Friday.

The Super Lig has been marked by violence and controversial refereeing decisions in recent months, with a referee punched in the face in December by a club president, while Fenerbahce has also raised concerns about bias in a tight title race.

Fenerbahce is second in the league and trail Galatasaray by two points after 31 games.

“As a result of the Turkish Football Federation’s negotiations with UEFA and five European federations, foreign Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will be assigned in the critical matches from the 32nd week… until the end of the league,” the TFF said in a statement.

The TFF said VARs would be selected from Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal, after the requests were accepted by the relevant national federations.
