TORONTO (AP) - The Canadian Football League board of governors approved video review of pass interference calls.

The CFL said Thursday that the new rule will allow a team to use an available coach’s challenge for a called or potential pass interference foul up to the final 3 minutes of a game. After that, a team can only challenge such a call or non-call one time, and only if it still has an unused challenge and a timeout remaining.

An unsuccessful challenge of a potential pass interference foul in the final 3 minutes will result in the loss of a timeout, but an unsuccessful challenge of an actual pass interference call in the final minutes will not.

“We are constantly looking for ways to make our great game even better and I believe we have done that today with the approval of this rule change,” CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon said in a statement. “Being progressive and using technology to compliment the excellent work our officials already do on the field is positive for our teams, players, and ultimately, our fans.”
