FIFA Set To Begin Trial Of Robotic Referee During Chelsea's Club World Cup Match

FIFA Set To Begin Trial Of Robotic Referee During Chelsea's

The football governing body FIFA has decided to begin another football match trial of robotic referee during Chelsea's semifinal match of the Club World Cup.

European Champions Chelsea will be the first Premier League team to experience a more technologically dominated match in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The technology was successfully used during the Arab Cup which means other teams in the region had seen its practice.

Chelsea will be entering the tournament at the semifinal stage and it would be the second time the Blues will be trying to add the trophy to their cabinet losing out to Corinthians on their first-ever try.

According to reports about the robotic referees, the new technology will be used to make offside decisions within half of a second.

Special cameras that will be attached to the stadium roofs will be used to create a 'limb-tracking system', creating animated skeletons that will help speed up the decision making process in regards to offside calls.

The VAR referees in place will then be alerted of the decision made by the technology, with the on-pitch referee then being subsequently informed.

The football body is hoping to fully implement it during the World Cup 2022 in Qatar in November and December with FIFA saying the robotics have the "potential to provide new insights for coaches, medical staff, and fans."
