Top 10 technology related to FIFA


Top 10 technology related to FIFA

The World Cup is one of the most popular sporting events in the world. It brings together people from all over the world to watch their favorite teams play, and it's an event that everyone looks forward to every four years. But what is even more exciting than watching soccer matches live? Technology has evolved significantly since FIFA first began awarding trophies in 1930. Today's players need equipment that can withstand high temperatures and humidity levels while maintaining accuracy under pressure—and these devices help ensure that they do just that! Here are 10 ways technology plays a role in making sure everything runs smoothly at this year's World Cup:

The Al Rihla ball

The Al Rihla ball is the official ball of the FIFA World Cup. It was designed to be more aerodynamic than previous balls, with an updated shape and construction that makes it easier for players to control.

The TPU used in this ball's construction provides excellent durability while maintaining high levels of flexibility and elasticity. This makes it ideal for use during intense matches where you want your team's goalkeeper to be able to make quick stops on shots from distance or crosses coming into their penalty area (which he will).

Semi-automated offside technology

  • Semi-automated offside technology

This is a 3D tracking system that uses a combination of camera and computer vision, similar to how Google’s Project Tango uses cameras in your phone to create 3D maps. It’s used to calculate whether an attacker is offside when they run past the halfway line and then it shows this information on screen. This could be useful for referees and coaches who want to see where players are at all times during games but it isn't 100% accurate yet (this will improve over time).

  • Video assistant referees (VAR)

This technology has been used since 2002 but its implementation increased in 2018 due to FIFA's new guidelines around VAR usage. The idea behind VARs is simple: if there are any doubts about what happened on the field after reviewing replays from video cameras or other sources like referees themselves then one person acts as judge over these decisions instead of several different people doing so separately – meaning less human error!

Al Rihla: World Cup Ball

The Al Rihla ball is the official ball of the FIFA World Cup 2022. It is made from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and thermoplastic polyester (TPC). The first ball to be made from recycled materials, it has been designed by Adidas with input from FIFA's technical team.

The TPU material offers a smooth surface on the outside, while inside it has small channels that help control airflow when kicked or passed through in order to maintain shape and control spin rates.

Stadium cooling

Stadium cooling is a technology that uses refrigeration to keep stadiums at a safe temperature during events, such as soccer and hockey games. The main benefit of using this technique is that it allows for fans to enjoy their favorite sport in comfort, knowing that no one will be too hot or cold.

The cooling process involves circulating air through pipes inside the stadium before it enters an evaporator coil containing water or other liquid solution. The heat from these coils is then transferred into the ambient air which gets cooled by evaporation or condensation depending on what liquid is used for cooling purposes (e.g., water).

The process also has other benefits beyond keeping people comfortable: It can improve airflow throughout an arena because there aren't any obstructions preventing fresh air from entering through openings; it reduces CO2 emissions by removing carbon dioxide from building materials like concrete; and finally it prevents mold growth due its ability prevent moisture levels rising too high within enclosed spaces like stadiums."

Goal-line technology

Goal-line technology is a system used to determine whether a ball has crossed the goal-line in association football. The system was developed by the Hawk-Eye company, who have been awarded the contract to supply it to FIFA for use in their competitions.[1][2]

The system consists of two cameras placed on either side of the goal line, one positioned above and one below ground level.[3] They are connected via fibre optic cables which transmit images from each camera back to an optical processor located just outside each stadium's perimeter fence.[4][5]

FIFA Player App

The FIFA Player App is a social media platform and mobile application that allows you to interact with your favorite players, teams, and tournaments. It's available on Apple and Android devices, in multiple languages and offers a variety of features such as news, videos and photos.

The app gives users the ability to follow their favorite soccer players on Twitter or Facebook; view live matches; see upcoming games; check out stats about individual players or teams (like how many goals they've scored); read up on recent news stories related to soccer; etc...

Football Data Ecosystem

Data is the new currency of football, and it’s not just about players. Football data has the potential to improve player performance, team performance and fan experience.

For example:

  • Player Analysis – Using data from player tracking systems like Opta or Prozone Sports we can see how far players run during training sessions, how many sprints they take in matches etc. This allows us to understand their workload and how this affects their recovery after games/training sessions;

  • Team Analysis – We can use this information to help predict team performance based on previous results or recent form trends;

  • Crowd Behaviour Analytics – By analysing crowd behaviour at certain stadiums we can get a feel for what type of atmosphere people enjoy there (e.g., loud noise levels)

Final thoughts

The World Cup is a great opportunity for technology to come out and shine. This year, we saw the use of virtual reality and augmented reality in many ways. We also saw some new innovations in ball technology as well as new stadiums being built for this event.

FIFA has made great strides when it comes to technology over the years, but there's always room for improvement! They might want to think about adapting their current stadiums so they can accommodate more fans or giving them better access points if they want people who aren't already wealthy enough or famous enough (like Messi) can get into games easier than before?

Connected Ball Technology

Connected Ball Technology is a new innovation that will be used in the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Connected Ball system uses technology to track the ball from kick-off to its final destination, allowing fans to follow its movements throughout each game.

VAR (Video Assistant Referee) Technology

VAR (Video Assistant Referee) Technology

The VAR technology that is used in all FIFA tournaments is a video assistant referee who helps referees make the right decisions.

VAR can be used to review four types of match-changing incidents: goals, penalty kicks, red cards and mistaken identity.


Now that you know about FIFA, it's time to see how technology can be used to improve sports. The most popular sport in the world is becoming more accessible to fans with technology advancements like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

FIFA is a great example of how technology can be used to improve sports. In addition, they have created an app called “FIFA Ultimate Team” which lets you play against other users while earning points for unique items that you can use in-game or sell on auction sites like eBay or Amazon Marketplace!


FIFA is one of the biggest sports in the world and it has a huge impact on technology.
