During the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar, video assistant referees (VARs) will be in use. This technology is an extension of the video review system that has already been in use at major international competitions. It allows officials on the field to make more accurate decisions. It is also used to help match officials make decisions regarding match-changing incidents. It is also used to assess handball and interference with an opponent.
The video review system first made its appearance at the World Cup in Russia. It was used to overturn 17 of the 20 wrong calls during the tournament. It also proved to be a huge success, especially in France, who won their second World Cup title. The system was rolled out across all of the major European leagues. It was also used at the German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A during the 2017/18 season.
The technology has been controversial in recent seasons, and fans have questioned whether it will be used correctly. The use of VAR at the World Cup has already created several controversial moments. However, FIFA president Gianni Infantino praised the system, saying that it was “a great success.” He also said that he felt like a VAR operator himself.
The technology is used in the German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A, and was also used at the Russia World Cup. It is also being used in the Champions League and La Liga. It is also used in the Premier League, but was not introduced until the 2019/20 season.
FIFA has been working to improve the process of VAR for the past few months. One major change is the introduction of limb tracking technology, which will help officials determine if a player is offside before the referee makes a call. It will also reduce the time it takes to make a decision by 25 seconds. This is important for tight offside calls.
The technology will use 29 data points on each player to help officials determine their position. This information will be fed to stadium cameras that will take in data 50 times per second. This will allow the cameras to focus on every limb of an individual player, and on the extremities required to make an offside call.
The technology will also have a dedicated multi-tracking camera rig that will track players on the field. This will help officials determine their position, as well as their position in relation to the goal. It will be used during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, along with the semi-automated offside system.
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will also feature the world’s first connected football, which will be made by Adidas. The ball, called Al Rihla, will feature an inertial measurement unit in its core. It will also have a sensor for tracking kicks and players’ positions. It is expected to be faster and more accurate than other World Cup balls.
Fans will also be able to see 3D animations in stadiums, which will be shown by FIFA’s broadcast partners. These animations will be able to be shown to fans at one stadium at a time, as well as on video screens in corridors.
