NEW YORK (KPTV) -

Major League Soccer announced that all MLS games will incorporate video review beginning August 5.

The announcement was made on Thursday.

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will be the fifth member of the officiating crew and will sit up in a booth at the stadium.

The VAR will then alert the head referee for possible errors and missed calls in four potential match-changing situations: goals, penalty kicks, straight red cards and cases of mistaken identity.

Video review will also be used during the Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs and MLS Cup.
