Thanks to the semi-automatic offside technique, fans feel like they are in the VAR room

Sensor in the ball, new offside technology

This World Cup takes the fan into the VAR room

Johannes Holzmuller, FIFA’s Director of Innovation and Technology, formulated the goal as follows: “We must make VAR faster and more accurate.”

When it came to the question of whether or not there was an offside, it worked. “So far, it has taken an average of 70 seconds to locate the offside,” says the Bavarian. Now this number should be reduced to an average of 25.
