Serie A to use 3D technology to help VAR on offside rulings

ROME (AP) Serie A will use 3D technology from next season to make video review more effective on offside rulings.

The introduction of Video Assistant Referees in the Italian top flight last season has reduced the number of errors, and additional technology should improve the system.

Serie A refereeing designator Nicola Rizzoli says the 3D technology ”will make the question of centimeters, which has caused problems in the past, even more precise.”

Rizzoli also highlighted that in the first season of VAR there was ”almost 20 percent fewer yellow cards for dissent … and 10 fewer straight red cards for dissent, which is a really exceptional result.”
