“We put it to the test at the Club World Cup, and it looks fantastic.” “We are extremely pleased, and we will make a decision before the tournament,” Infantino said at a press conference in Doha following a meeting of the International Football Association Board, which oversees the game’s laws.

“I’m optimistic it can go forward,” said Pierluigi Collina, chairman of FIFA’s Referees Committee.

Semi-automated VAR uses automatic ball detection and builds three-dimensional representations of a player’s location in real time, allowing offside to be recognized in seconds.

The usage of five substitutes in the Laws of the Game was ratified by the IFAB, as expected.

It was first implemented as a rule change in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, but it has now been made permanent, albeit its use in different contests will be at the discretion of the organizing organization.

The Premier League, for example, had allowed five substitutes when the idea was first floated by FIFA in May 2020 but reverted back to three subs for their last two seasons. They have agreed, though, to allow five substitutes starting next season.

The maximum number of substitutes on the bench was also increased from 12 to 15 at the discretion of the competition’s organizing authority.

These modifications will take effect on July 1st.

IFAB also discussed attacks on referees and the possibility of body cameras being worn which would act as a deterrent as well as evidence collection.

“Referees will profit from the possible protection, which sadly still takes place in many parts of the world,” Infantino said.

“We have attacks on them from players, officials, spectators and parents and we have to be very firm in that respect.”

He also said more trials on tweaking the offside law and making decisions less marginal would continue in junior tournaments in Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden.

It would also be tested to see if there are any techniques to keep track of time better. “It is not acceptable that a game of 90 minutes actually only have the ball in play for 47-48 minutes on average. We have to look into that,” Infantino added.
