Video assistant referees will be used for the first time in English competitive football in this season's FA Cup, the Football Association said on Thursday.

While neither of the football clubs are yet to issue an official response, leading Crystal Palace fanzine Five Year Plan confirmed on Twitter they had taken it upon themselves to follow up the initial claims and sent a freedom of information request to Sussex Police for all the details given in the first place, which resulted in the false allegations. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

Brighton and Hove Albion's third-round FA Cup meeting with Crystal Palace on January 8 will be the first competitive club match in England in which the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will be used, the Football Association said on Thursday.

The VAR is now being used in Italy and Germany and was employed for the first time in an official game in Britain during the worldwide friendly between England and Germany in November, when it was not called on.

"The FA has always been open to trialling new innovations and was heavily involved in the advancement of goal-line technology before it was introduced", the FA's director of professional game relations Andy Ambler said in a statement.

The VAR will automatically check every relevant incident and will inform the referee of any clear and obvious error.

VAR, which was trialed in England's goalless draw with Germany in November, is used in game-changing situations - goals, penalties and straight red cards.
