Qatar will become the first Arab nation to host the World Cup in 2022. The Qatar 2022 World Cup will also be hosted in the middle of the European football season for the first time. Additionally, all eight World Cup locations are within one hour. This is the closest the World Cup has ever been held.
Qatar has referred to the 2022 FIFA World Cup as an “Invention.” This sentence is accurate in numerous ways. Some of the World Cup technology and features in Qatar are unique and innovative.
Let’s have a look;
FIFA has revealed that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will employ a semi-automated system capable of sending offside alerts to video match officials in real-time. This will be possible because the balls will be linked, and a camera system will maintain track of every player on the field.
This technology will aid officials in making quicker decisions, keeping the game going.
The FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, stated: “Semi-automated offside technology has been incorporated into the VAR systems implemented worldwide.
This technology is the culmination of three years of intensive research and testing to ensure that teams, players, and fans traveling to Qatar later this year have the most enjoyable experience imaginable.
Qatar’s World Cup venues will be among the most aesthetically pleasing and technologically advanced in the world. Qatar’s world cup venues will use innovative cooling technology to maintain a constant temperature of roughly 26 degrees Celsius. The new technology allows fans and players to play and watch in a more relaxing environment.
In addition, a sustainable energy facility will be constructed next to the stadiums. This facility’s cooling technology will be powered by 40 percent more green and sustainable energy sources. This technology will be utilized at seven of Qatar’s World Cup venues.
This is due to the proximity of the 974 Stadium to the ocean, which naturally cools it.
Retractable roofs can be closed in inclement weather; however, In the Qatar 2022 stadiums, this is not their primary function.
The retractable roofs accelerate the cooling process, preventing the air conditioning systems from consuming more water or energy than necessary. The black roof of Al Bayt Stadium was replaced with a white top during the planning phase to absorb less heat and use less electricity.
ElPalm will debut at the World Cup in Qatar. With solar panels and a wind turbine, Qatar will harness the sun’s and wind’s energy. Fans will have a place to sit and be shielded from the scorching sun.
It will also feature USB charging stations, speakers for disseminating vital information, and advertisements. The Palm will also have Wi-Fi, allowing fans to connect even when streaming.
The ElPalm shading wind turbine is powered by solar cells and bifacial photovoltaic cells. In addition to advertising, mist cooling, surveillance cameras, lights, and speakers, the ElPalm also features billboards.
Goal Line Technology
At the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Karim Benzema of France utilized goal-line technology when the ball passed the Honduras goal line in milliseconds. Goal-line is a technology that employs computers to determine if the ball has wholly crossed the goal line.
During the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, this innovative concept assisted referees in handling up to eight distinct circumstances. The Goal line technology will also be in play in Qatar.
Offside calls are crucial for those who wager on the game. Qatar-based online betting services such as Rabona and 1XBet are available to World Cup supporters. They are typically available in multiple languages and provide an excellent boost to newbies.
