The Premier League will use automatic offside technology in the 2024-2025 season

This Thursday, clubs The Premier League has unanimously decided to introduce the semi-automatic offside technology used at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar for the 2024-2025 season.

According to the tournament, it is planned to introduce this technology after a break in the national team in September or October.

This semi-automatic offside will reduce the time of VAR reviews by around 31 seconds.

„This technology will provide greater speed and stability with a virtual offside line, based on optical tracking of the player. „This will create high-quality graphics for television and an enhanced in-stadium experience for fans,” the Premier League said in a statement.

The intention is to introduce the system to FA Cup qualifiers at Premier League club grounds, as well as semi-finals and finals at Wembley.

At the World Cup in Qatar, a chip was introduced inside the ball responsible for determining the last touch of the ball in doubtful matches.

The technology has also been used in the Champions League and Serie A and the Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Manchester City won the Club World Cup.

With this commitment, it has not been ruled out that other world championships may adopt this commitment, although initially the investment in technology was huge in the economy. Thus, it is expected that VAR will continue to improve and generate less debates and controversies.

At Goal Caracol we consulted former FIFA referee Albert Duarte from Colombia. „What an automated or semi-automated system does is software that can very quickly determine the position of a player in front of the opponent's goal line and determine whether that position is legal offside.This leads to a much faster, almost instantaneous end, unlike what we see now.”
