Football Federation Australia will prepare for video replay trials in the A-League after being one of six countries approved by FIFA to run offline experiments.

FIFA has approved the A-League and competitions from five other countries, including Germany and Brazil, to trial video assistant referees before eventual live tests.

The system will use video replays to check game-changing incidents such as penalty kick decisions, red cards and goals scored from line-ball offside calls.
