The Bermuda Football Association President Mark Wade will be live at 11:30 am to discuss the recently concluded FIFA Congress.
Upon re-election to serve a second term as FIFA President Gianni Infantino took to the stage at the 73rd FIFA Congress to thank the assembled member associations for their continued support, and made 11 pledges for the future to ensure the continued growth of the global game.
Infantino pledged to make technology more accessible to all member associations – including introducing a programme to allow for the universal implementation of video assistant referees (VAR), across the global game.
Infantino said, “We have been introducing VAR now in over 100 countries around the world,” the FIFA President said. “We will be introducing VAR Light with around four cameras to allow those who have less means to have VAR. We are (also) working on a last level with at least one camera to have a small video help for the referee. We tested it in the (FIFA) Futsal World Cup, and it works. It works. And we will continue to test it to really give everyone in the 211 (member) associations the possibility to have some technological help for the referee because it is very, very difficult to be a referee at every level, of course.”
