adidas created the official world cup ball
Football for the 14th FIFA event has been prepared by the popular sports company Adidas. A special type of sensor has been fitted inside this ball, so that information about peak game speeds is available. FIFA claims that this ball will be the fastest traveling football in the history of the tournament. With the help of sensors in it, apart from the speed and position of the ball, it can be tracked up to the point of kicking it. adidas’ suspension system will help it detect at what point the ball is kicked.
Football tracking system will work like this
Offside incidents will be detected with the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor present on the football with CRT-CORE inside and Speedshell textured PU skin on the outside. The data of this ball will be sent to the video operation room 500 times every second, so that the kick point can be detected. That is, if the player has kicked the ball from outside the ground, then it can be detected immediately and there will be no dispute. This ball will help the referee to make better and accurate decisions.

Al Rihala Football will assist the referee
FIFA this year implemented a new semi-automated offside detecting system to assist the referees. With 12 tracking cameras installed throughout the stadium and the Al Rihala ball, the technology will send automatic offside alerts to the video referee anytime a shot is played outside the bounds of the ground. This would reduce the referee’s reliance on protected VAR replays, which until now had been used to decide whether a player had kicked the ball from inside or outside the ground. That is, technology has been trusted instead of referees during FIFA.
