Tehran Times Football Federation Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) president Mehdi Taj has invited the chairman of FIFA’s Referees Committee, Pierluigi Collina, to come to Iran to attend Tehran derby between Esteghlal and Persepolis in the Iranian league.

Pierluigi-Collina-IranThe match has been scheduled to take place in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium on March 30. The video assistant referee (VAR) will be used for the first time in Tehran derby. Collina said VAR technology was successful at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and is sure it is here to stay.

“VAR was successful in Russia and I believe that technological tools are very important in football. I think Alireza Faghani as a real expert can help the Iranian football federation for this technology,” Collina told Taj. Last year, FIFA President Gianni Infantino attended the match in Tehran.
