Qatar World Cup to use ‘semi-automatic’ offside technology

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Qatar World Cup to use ‘semi-automatic’ offside technology” – below is their description.

Technology that automatically detects when a player is offside will be used at this year’s World Cup in Qatar, Fifa has announced.

Football’s governing body has said the semi-automated technology will help to significantly reduce the time required to make offside decisions through the use of Var.

The technology, which includes a sensor within the match ball and 12 dedicated tracking cameras, is the result of three years of research and testing.

Pierluigi Collina, the chairman of Fifa’s referee committee, said the new technology is expected to reduce the time taken on Var offside decisions from 70 seconds to around 20 seconds.
