A camera more accurate than the human eye Semi-automatic offside reading in Asian Cup

Following the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, machines will judge offsides before humans at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup to be held next year.AFC announced on the 19th that it will introduce semi-automatic offside reading technology (SAOT) at the 2024 Qatar Asian Cup to be held in January next year.This is the first time that SAOT is used in a competition hosted by not only the AFC but also each continental federation.In this tournament, 12 special cameras installed in the stadium determine the location of the ball and the player’s body, including limbs, to determine whether or not the player is offside, and if offside, the VAR referee will be notified immediately.

The final decision is made by the referee.If there are not at least two players from the opposing team in front of the player receiving the ball at the time of passing to an attacking teammate, it is considered offside. This is the most difficult foul to catch in soccer and is the most controversial foul.To improve the accuracy of offside decisions, FIFA brought cutting-edge camera tracking technology and human motion recognition technology to the ground and introduced SAOT for the first time at the Qatar World Cup last year.AFC Chairman Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Khalifa said, “Asia’s match officials have established themselves as among the best in the world. The introduction of SAOT will lead them to a higher level.”The 2024 AFC Asian Cup will be held in 스포츠토토존 Qatar from January 12 to February 10 next year.
