NCAA approves video review for 2016 season


The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has approved video review for the 2016 season to determine whether a goal has been scored, identify players for disciplinary matters and determine whether a fight occurred and identify participants.

The new rule for men’s and women’s soccer is not a requirement, but can be employed if both coaches agree before the start of the game. The home team will be responsible for providing the equipment and must make it available at the scorekeeper’s table or at another location on field level.

Like in other sports like basketball, the video review must display indisputable evidence for the original call to be overturned.
