Rebekah Vardy shows off her refereeing skills as World Cup VAR expert
Rebekah Vardy shows off her refereeing skills as she teams up with BetBright as their official 2018 World Cup VAR expert.
She has been receiving a crash course in refereeing by former Premier League referee, Mark Halsey, before being tested on her knowledge by reviewing some of the most contentious decisions in World Cup history.
"Growing up with my Dad shouting at the telly when a referee made a bad decision has definitely influenced me,” Rebekah said.
“I know when to voice my opinion! However, getting a crash course in VAR has given me some real expertise in calling out decisions in a split second".
Sarne Lightman, Managing Director of BetBright said, “We’re thrilled to have Rebekah on board for the summer, at Betbright we pride ourselves on our unique sports betting product and are always looking for ways to reflect that in our content.
"During a World Cup where most Sportsbooks will have the usual rota of football pundits all writing the same basic content, Rebekah will bring a fresh and fun perspective to VAR decisions for our customers.
“Rebekah has soaked up all the tips from Mark and is ready for her VAR calls, as and when they happen during the tournament, across our Twitter and Facebook pages.”
