The Future of Football [Infographic]

Like many of today’s sports football is becoming increasingly technological. It won’t be long before the referees will be given the opportunity to watch video replays of incidents that he is unsure of, in the same way as the refs in rugby and cricket do. Goal-line technology is already playing a huge part in top flight matches, but what will the future hold in store?

Currently the only technology being used is Goal-line, with sensors and high speed cameras set-up to determine whether the ball has crossed the goal line or not. Goal-line technology first made its appearance back in 2012 at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.

Moreover, video replays have been used in a friendly between Italy and France earlier this year and video replays will be used in the 2018 World Cup being held in Russia.

Looking forward there is the possibility of retractable turf cameras, and cameras embedded into the players kit. Both of these will give video assistance to the referees to aid with decision making, these cameras would also give fans a close-up view of what it’s like to be a player on the pitch.

Other technological advances of the future could include flying bug cameras with the ability to follow players around the pitch, and robot football to help during training sessions. Some of the data could be used to make video games like FIFA 17 more realistic as can be seen in FIFA 17 reviews.

This infographic takes a look at current and emerging technological advances in the beautiful game. While some people think it’s all a step to far others welcome these advances to make a referees life easier and notably more accurate in their decision making. Take a look and decide whether you think technology has a place in the football of the future.
