Following the Qatar World Cup, the Asian Cup…AFC introduces ‘semi-automatic offside reading technology’

Semi-automatic offside reading technology (SAOT) will be introduced at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Doha, Qatar, in 2024, where machines judge offside before humans.

AFC announced on Wednesday that it will introduce SAOT to the Qatar Asian Cup in January 2022. It is the first time that SAOT will be used not only in AFC but also in competitions hosted by continental federations.

Offside is the most difficult foul to catch in soccer. There are also many controversies over misjudgment.

In this competition, 12 special cameras installed in the stadium determine the location of the ball and the player’s body, such as limbs, to determine whether it is offside. If it is offside, it is immediately delivered to the VAR referee’s office, and the final decision is made by the referee.

AFC President Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Khalifa said, “Asian game inspectors are now among the best in the world. The introduction of SAOT will lead them to a higher level.”

He added, “The AFC will continue to take the lead in leading the global refereeing and provide the best stage for the players by embracing the latest technological innovations and fully implementing the video assistant referee system in Asia’s best stadiums.” 월카지노

FIFA previously introduced this system at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. To improve offside judgment accuracy, state-of-the-art camera tracking technology and human motion recognition technology were put on the ground.

The 2024 AFC Asian Cup will be held in Qatar from January 12 to February 10 next year.
