FIFA clears the way for video review at World Cup in Russia

2018-03-04 11:08 provenance:未知 sentiment: comments(0

In Russia, it is expected FIFA will use a central command center for VAR teams working away from stadiums to communicate with referees.

FIFA President Gianni Inntino has long said World Cup referees must get high-tech help to review key decisions at the 64-game tournament.

The decision represents a new era for football with video assistance for referees helping to increase integrity and irness in the game, the panel said in a statement.

Video review can overturn clear and obvious errors and serious missed incidents by match officials involving goals, penalty awards, red cards, and mistaken identity.

VAR at the World Cup will certainly help to have a irer World Cup, Inntino said at a news conference. If there is a big mistake, it will be corrected.

FIFAs then-president Sepp Blatter surprised IFAB officials in Sao Paulo by suggesting coaches could call on video replays to challenge some refereeing decisions.

The panel, known as IFAB, voted unanimously to begin updating the games written rules to include video assistant referees (VAR) and give competition organizers the choice to adopt it.

Several games at the 2017 Confederations Cup, FIFAs World Cup warm-up tournament in Russia, also left players, coaches and ns in the stadium unsure what match officials were doing. Communication was unclear during reviews lasting minutes instead of a handful of seconds, which was the target suggested in 2016 when the protocol for using VAR was shaped and trials began.

Inntino said that while the current VAR system is not perfect ... we have to have the ambition to get close to perfection.

That will likely come on March 16 when the FIFA Council meets in Bogota, Colombia.

The potential use of video review was first announced on the eve of the World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Still, the International Football Association Boards approval was expected Saturday because FIFA controls four of the eight votes. The four British soccer associations, which created IFAB in -6, have one vote each, and six are needed to approve an idea.

The decision Saturday is among the most fundamental changes to soccer since the laws were codified - years ago.

FIFA must also choose technology providers with more than 10 involved in trials and workshops at Zurich.

The landmark decision leaves much yet to be finalized, such as wording for the amended rules and an exact protocol for operating the system including communicating to ns in the stadium.

The VAR system has often created confusion in the first full season of live trials which now include more than 1,000 games worldwide. Top-tier competitions which opted to use it include Germanys Bundesliga and Italys Serie A.

ZURICH (AP) FIFAs rule- panel approved adding video review to the laws of soccer on Saturday, clearing the way for its use at the World Cup in June.

UEFA has already ruled out using VAR in the Champions League next season, and the English Premier League is also waiting to see if the system can prove itself essential.

We have to speed up reviews, the CEO of Englands Football Association, Martin Glenn, acknowledged after taking part in the decision. Communications to the crowd has to be better. People in the crowd arent sure what is happening.

At the 2014 World Cup, FIFA deployed goal-line technology. Referees were alerted with a yes-no signal to their watches after multiple camera angles judged if the ball crossed the line. Goal-line systems are now used at UEFAs European Championship and in the Premier League.

FIFA must take a further decision on using VAR at the World Cup in Russia, which kicks off June 14.

FIFAs historical reluctance to embrace technological help for referees changed at the 2010 World Cup, after an England goal was not given despite Frank Lampards shot clearly crossing the German goal-line. Germany went on to win the Round of 16 game 4-1.
