'It would be up to the clubs to foot the bill'.

The only figure I've seen banded about was in Brazil where the estimated cost was over 5 million euros per season.If it went ahead and the costs were evenly distributed amongst clubs it would affect the smaller clubs more and potentially further increase the gap at the top end.The smaller clubs aren't going to vote for it when money is tight-it would be like turkeys voting for Christmas.I'm not against VAR but not to the detriment of the game as a whole. I've no idea if that estimate is still correct but if so it would work out at over £350k per team per season-money that Scottish clubs simply don't have.

How would it work if it was only applied in the Premier League? Would every team in the league need to pay an annual subscription to sign up for it? If you are a team battling relegation would you be keen to pay in the knowledge that the following season you might not have it.
