World Cup 2022 ‘ready to see automated offside system’ favored by Arsene Wenger

The automated offside system is ‘set to be used in the 2022 World Cup and could be in the Premier League by 2023’ with Hawk-Eye cameras capable of tracking each player and the ball before sending a decision to the players. VAR officers in half a second

  • The new Hawk-Eye technology is configured to determine offside calls in soccer games.
  • The system used 12 cameras around a stadium to track each player and the ball.
  • It can calculate in half a second whether a player is out of play or out of play.
  • The verdict will be transmitted to the VAR officials who will make the final decision.
  • The automated system ‘is on track to be used at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar’
  • Tech could be part of the Premier League in time for 2023-24

The technology that automatically detects if a player is offside is underway to be used in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and could be in the Premier League in 2023.

The Hawk-Eye system uses cameras to track the movement of both the ball and the players to determine whether a player is out of play or out of play at the moment a pass is made.

At first, it will function as a semi-automatic system that sends a message to the video assistant referee (VAR), who then decides whether the offside player was interfering with play.

Offside decisions could be automated after the development of new technology.

But ultimately, the technology could mean that referees on the field are instantly notified whether a player is offside or not.

Hawk-Eye has been conducting non-live tests of its technology at the stadiums of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, the four representatives of the Premier League Champions League, this season.

And, according to The times, the company has informed FIFA that the technology is ‘ready to go’ with just over a year to go to the World Cup.

FIFA must approve the use of automated offside technology, which could also be featured at the FIFA Club World Cup in February in the United Arab Emirates, a tournament in which Chelsea will participate.

Chief referees are confident that the technology could be rolled out in the Premier League at the start of the 2023-24 season.

FIFA is believed to prefer the semi-automatic option in which VAR officials are notified of the Hawk-Eye verdict and then make final judgment.

It would replace the sometimes controversial VAR “line” system used to judge whether an attacker is offside.

But it is possible to notify the referee on the field and two linesmen of the decision immediately.

The system makes use of 12 cameras located around the field and also artificial intelligence that monitors 29 points on each player’s body using a ‘skeletal player tracking system’.

Ball movement is also tracked and computers will be able to determine an offside call within 0.5 seconds of real time.

But future offside decisions could be made by technology rather than officials.

Arsene Wenger, FIFA’s head of global football development, endorsed automated offside technology earlier this year.

He said: ‘Automated means it goes straight from the signal to the linesman and the linesman has a red light on his watch that tells him offside or offside.

‘Right now, we have a situation where players are online to see if they are offside or not.

“On average, the time we have to wait is around 70 seconds, sometimes a minute 20 seconds, sometimes a little longer when the situation is very difficult to appreciate.

“It is very important because we see that many celebrations are canceled after that due to marginal situations and that is why I think it is a very important step.”

Two weeks ago, Wenger added on the subject: ‘At the 2022 World Cup, we will be much better able to make very quick offside decisions. And it will stop the game less because that’s what VAR can be blamed for. ‘
