Aleksander Ceferin, the Uefa president, previously said at a press conference with the European Club Association president Andrea Agnelli that next season would be "the latest for VAR".

Video assistant referees will be used in the Champions League and Europa League this season, Uefa has announced.

This Monday UEFA's executive committee, taking advantage of the celebration of the Euro 2020 draw, have given the green light to VAR being introduced to this season's Champions League.

Manchester City's final group match against Hoffenheim next week is to be used by Uefa as its final non-live trial of VAR, with the system introduced from the first knockout round in February.

It will ensure that at least 34 countries will be represented in UEFA club competitions, compared to today's total of 26.

UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin, has always been a champion of the use of technology to assist officials, however he wanted every piece of information on the system before permitting it to be used in the governing body's primary competition.

The UEL2 and the Europa League will follow the same format: eight groups of four teams, with the group winners entering the last 16. There will be a play-off before that round for the teams who finish second in the group and sides who finish third in the groups of the higher tournament.

"There was a widespread demand by all clubs to increase their chances of participating more regularly in European competition".

This was in spite of the technology being employed by major European leagues in Europe and the FIFA World Cup finals in Russian Federation this year.

The "Europa League II" will not effect the schedule of either the Champions League or the Europa League as games are set to be played on Thursday afternoons.

"No changes will be made to the format and access list of the UEFA Champions League", said UEFA.
