Instant replay to debut at 2018 FIFA World Cup

by on April 28, 2017

On-field instant replay will be used at the World Cup for the first time in 2018, when Russia hosts the tournament.

This was confirmed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino recently.

Video replay came to American foot­ball years ago, filling out professional stadiums in 2007 and college-level ball in 2010. Ref-assisting technology start­ed trickling into soccer thereafter, with FIFA finally bringing goal-line tracking games in 2012 and video replay into gen­eral matches last year.

It is expected that on-field replay will prevent the controversies that have haunted past World Cups.
