The introduction of semi-automated semi-automated VAR Offside technology, led by Artificial Intelligence, will be used at the World Cup in Qatar.
This is the message of the International Federation of Football Associations (IFAB).
Out-of-game decisions using VAR can take up to four minutes, and the technology is designed to provide quick information and reduce the resolution to three to four seconds.
Chelsea were the first Premier League team to experience the technology in the Club Cup in February, two months after the first semi-automated system was launched.
IFAB has resumed talks with FIFA to implement an improved VAR system, with the aim of using external technology at next November’s World Cup.
“It looks very good and very promising,” FIFA president Gianni Infantino said in a statement on Monday.
“Our experts are looking for [the trials] Before deciding whether or not to use the World Cup.
FIFA chief referee Pierre Luigi Colina added: “My personal opinion is that we will continue to do so in the future. We want to get accurate, fast decisions, and more acceptable decisions.
“We have seen in matches where semi-automated offenses have been implemented. These objectives have been achieved.
“It uses the same process as goal line technology, and we have seen that it is acceptable in the football community, no one is commenting on this.
“In terms of acceptance, we are confident that the same response can be given by semi-automatic offside.”
The 136th Annual General Meeting of the IFAB has consistently endorsed five replacement options.

If the Premier League wins the World Cup, it is expected to introduce the 2023-24 season.
Attempts are being made to take advantage of the situation outside of offensive line, Colina said, adding that the rules will be taken into account.
Colina adds: “We think it is not so important to punish in modern football that much less than offside.
“So we are conducting this experiment. Unfortunately, the competitions in which these experiments were allowed have been suspended or abandoned for two years due to the epidemic.
“So now we are facing challenges. [youth football] In the Netherlands, Italy, and Sweden, and of course, if we have evidence and figures from these experiments, we will come to the conclusion.
The IFAB is also investigating how to reduce wastage, with the ball usually only playing 54 minutes per 90 minutes of play.
