by Manuel Armenteros

Part of the Routledge Research in Sports Technology and Engineering Series

The Use of Video Technologies in Refereeing Football and Other Sports Synopsis

The IFAB took a historic step in the approval of experiments on the use of video in order to provide support to football refereeing. For a long time, various different lobbying sectors had claimed this technology as an effective aid in decision making. The Use of Video Technologies in Refereeing Football and Other Sports analyses the capacity of audio-visual technology from different perspectives to help understand the best implementation of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system in football and, more generally, in other sports. This book addresses in depth interdisciplinary viewpoints on the need and the opportunity of the implementation procedures regarding how to use it, considering that it could lead to very important changes. The Use of Video Technologies in Refereeing Football and Other Sports goes on to examine various approaches to most interesting topics for players, amateurs, coaches, referees and referees coaches. Offering viewpoints from both academics and professionals, this new volume addresses the VAR issue in a multidisciplinary way, analysing the implications of video replay application in football from the perspective of players, coaches, television professionals, referees, amateurs, sports lawyers, media and educators.
