As in other leagues, VAR in Liga MX will be limited to cases of penalty kicks, red cards, goals and cases of mistaken identity.

Other country leagues that have employed VAR include, Germany(Bundesliga), Italy(Serie A), Spain(La Liga), France(Ligue 1), Portugal (Primeira Liga) and the Netherlands(Eredivisie) and America (MLS).

VAR was in the World Cup 2018 and helped ensure referees had the best possible chance to make the right calls.
