FIFA has announced that semi-automated offside technology will be used at the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar starting on 21 November for all 64 matches, offering a support tool for the video match officials and the on-field officials to help them make faster, more accurate and more reproducible offside decisions on the biggest stage of all.
🚨 ICYMI 🚨— FIFA.com (@FIFAcom) July 1, 2022
Semi-automated offside technology will be used at the #FIFAWorldCup, offering a support tool for video, and on-field officials.
3D animations will be shown on the 🏟 giant screens & made available to FIFA’s 📺 partners, to inform fans.
This is how it works.
Following the successful use of VAR technology at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia, FIFA President Gianni Infantino declared in The Vision 2020-23 that FIFA would strive to harness the full potential of technology in football and further enhance VAR.
The new technology uses 12 dedicated tracking cameras mounted underneath the roof of the stadium to track the ball and up to 29 data points of each individual player, 50 times per second, calculating their exact position on the pitch. The 29 collected data points include all limbs and extremities that are relevant for making offside calls.
