FIFA president Gianni Infantino announced the introduction of almost fully automated offside technology in a media meeting “soon”.

“We introduced semi-automatic offside technology in the last World Cup. “We are constantly working on improving it and we hope to have a fully automated version for the next finals,” Valisian told representatives of public broadcasters in Geneva.

The system will work similarly to goal-line technology, with the referee sending the score on his watch. What remains unclear is how to react in situations where the ball comes from a defender. “Then the attacker is not offside, even if he starts from an offside position. But we are working on that.” When asked when this technology would be introduced, Infantino said: “Very soon.”

With the semi-automatic offside detection system used in Qatar, there are 12 additional cameras under the roof of the stadium that measure the exact positions of the players and the ball 50 times per second. However, the data does not go directly to the referee on the field, but to VAR.
