TECHNOLGY AND SOCCER

By: Daisy Cardenas

When talking about sports and technology it comes to mind football, baseball, basketball, rugby, and even tennis. The controversy is created while relating soccer and technology. There are many people in favor of the goal-line technology being introduce during soccer games, but also many people oppose to the idea.

There

are

several

discussion as

Slowing the speed of the game, changing the view of the game, causing technical problems during a game, and the cost by not being able to afford the software for lower soccer league divisions.

Although the debates going on about the Hawk-Eye technology there has been several testing in order to prove there would be no effect against the flow of the game, or any other technical problems.

The first major testing went on right before the 2014 World Cup. It was the first time that any type of technology was use during a World Cup. During the 2014 World Cup game between France and Honduras was the first time the Hawk-Eye technology contribute with the decision of a controversial goal-line play made by Benzema.

These successful play lead to the trust of the goal-line technology, and produce the confidence for other soccer leagues to begin developing the testing of the Hawk-Eye system.

Later on the Italian Series A Soccer League testing went on during real matches in order

to decide of the goal-line technology should be implemented or not.

A summary of the

response time is reported, as evidenced, considering the realistic threshold of 2 seconds for the systems response, it can be noted that in about 80% of the total number of

experiments the response time was acceptable(Spagnolo, 2013). The results of the testing regarding the Italian Series A league demonstrated positive outcome in order for the system to be incorporated.

So after analyzing some important facts about recent information on the Hawk-Eye Technology should it be apply during soccer games?

In order to achieve a more well developed game there has to be an equivalent procedure take place in at least every 1st Division soccer league. First of all FIFA needs to design a new regulation for the goal-line technology and contribute with a certain income for the Hawk-Eye system. These would challenge a new way of soccer and technology working together in order to developed a better soccer game.

The change has to begin taking place on the most important soccer leagues such as the Liga BBVA, Champions League, Premier League, Liga Mx, and the European League. This would assist with a later better development of the system in other minor soccer leagues.

There has to be action take place in order for any more mistakes to occur, as the one of the most controversial misunderstandings during the 2010 World Cup. When Lampards goal was invalidated against Germany.

So in order to keep these kind of mistakes from happening the Hawk-Eye technology needs to be take in action and by applied in at least the most important world-wide soccer leagues. It would actually benefit the flow of the game and the intensity would continue.
