FIFA says it will use semi-automatic offside technology at the November to December World Cup to make video assistant decisions faster and more reliable. Football’s world governing body said on Friday that the system would be used in all 64 matches in Qatar. The new offside technology was tested at the Arab Cup and the Club World Cup in February. The data will be reviewed by a video assistant and immediately relayed to the referee on the field. In addition to more precise measurements, it is also hoped that the technology speeds up video assistant reviews for offside.
