FIFA will use the upcoming Arab Cup to check out a semi-automatic detection of offside in soccer utilizing specialised cameras and a devoted offside video assistant.
If the outcomes are constructive, the system could then be used on the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar.
A digicam system could be arrange on the roof of every stadium and knowledge relayed to a video assistant who can then alert the referee.
“Limb tracking data extracted from the video will be sent to the operations rooms and the calculated offside line and detected kick-point is provided,” Johannes Holzmueller, FIFA director of soccer expertise and innovation, stated on Monday.
“The replay operator then has the opportunity to show it immediately to the VAR,” added Holzmueller. “At the FIFA Arab Cup the assistant VAR at a dedicated offside station can immediately validate and confirm the information.”
The Arab Cup can be a dry run for the 2022 World Cup with 16 groups within the match that runs to December 16 utilizing six stadiums in Qatar.
