In the Qatar World Cup, for the first time, referees are assisted by a semi-automated system for offside decisions. Will bots make all decisions soon? The FIFA president says: No.

DrWhat Pierluigi Collina, the chief referee of FIFA for soccer, in an interview with digital media on Friday morning, envisions an innovation for the World Cup in Qatar: Using semi-automatic offside technology, FIFA wants to use semi-automatic offside technology in the tournament, which begins on 21 November, make video judges decisions faster and more reliable.

“We are ready to use it. We are pleased with the test results, and we are continuing our work,” Collina said of the new technology. “We want accurate decisions.” The system will be used in all 64 matches of the tournament.

The referee remains the final decision maker.

The new measurement technique for offside decisions was last tested in the Arab Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup in February. The 500Hz signal in the ball and dozens of cameras that record player movements through data points are used to more accurately record the position of players who might be offside than before. The data is checked by a video assistant and immediately sent to the referee on the field.

According to Kollina, in addition to more accurate measurements, they also hope to save time. So far, intrusion checks take about 70 seconds, with the new system you can reduce them to about 25 seconds. Fans in the stadium must be informed of decisions via video screens. “FIFA wants to continue to promote technology to improve football at all levels,” FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement.

Collina again contradicted the accusation that technology would replace rulers with robots. The former supreme referee said: “I know some are talking about an offside robot, and this is wrong, because the referee and the assistant referees are still deciding.”

The end of development is not in sight. But “the referee remains the final decision maker,” Collina said. Introduction video rule success story. “The game is much cleaner, there is no longer a tug in standard situations” – and the ingestion and mimicry have completely disappeared, Colina said.
