Football Association welcomes talks over potential broadcast of refereeing decisions

The FA says it would welcome talks with the PGMOL over the release of audio after a match but stressed it must consider the views of match officials; IFAB has delayed a decision over whether to allow real-time audio from match officials to be broadcast during a match

The current laws of the game prevent an open audio channel between referees and non-match officials but there is nothing to prevent competitions from releasing referee audio after a game.

When asked whether audio involving Premier League and FA Cup ties should be broadcast after a match, the FA has claimed the ability to listen to match officials could “add value” for fans.
