The New System
Refereed might miss out sometimes to give an off-side if it is, as a mistake can certainly take place through a human. Hence the new system will from now on the handle the business. It works by sending an automatic message to the VAR. This will then be able to judge whether it is an offside or not.
Computers as well as the cameras do the work of tracking players as well as the ball. Here, artificial intelligence will determine whether a player is one offside or not when at that moment the ball was kicked by that respective player.

Overall, the new technology will be fully examined as well as experimented with before it is implemented in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which is designed with the motive that both sides get a fair judgement.
