Champions League to get new camera tech for offside calls

August 04, 2022

NYON — The Champions League will use a camera-based system to judge tight offside calls in the group stage starting next month, UEFA said Wednesday.



The Semi-Automated Offside Technology, which was also approved last month by FIFA for the World Cup in Qatar, uses multiple cameras to more accurately track players’ limbs and the point when a key pass is made.

The technology promises faster and more accurate offside decisions than are currently made with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

UEFA said it will use the new system next Wednesday at the Super Cup game between European champion Real Madrid and Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt in Helsinki ahead of its Champions League debut on Sept. 6.

The system was tested at the women’s European Championship that finished Sunday in England and in the Champions League last season. — Agencies
