First World Cup to use Video Assistant Referee

Graphic News

June 14-July 15, 2018 -- Video Assistant Referees (VARs) aim to help referees reach more correct decisions. The system was introduced to most top European leagues, and was trialled in England’s FA Cup, in the 2017–18 season. The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia kicks off on June 14.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
