The former penalty box assistants used by UEFA

Prior to the assumption of Gianni Infantino as president of FIFA, the organization was quite reluctant to introduce technology to help referees. Right now any sports betting in Uganda is possible on 1xbet.ug, and this website can also be used to wager on the best football matches. 

 

The discussion of introducing some kind of technology was present for decades prior to the introduction of VAR. In 2008, UEFA decided against using technological tools, and instead, they decided to rely on extra assistant referees that could help the main official. At this moment any sports betting is possible on 1xBet Uganda, in which punters can also wager on the decision and outcomes that involve referees.

Controversies with corners and penalty kicks

Some occurrences that happen near the goal line can be quite controversial. The infamous handball made by Thierry Henry in a match against Ireland during a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier is a great proof of that. The 1xbet.ug/live/ website can also be visited at any moment in order to wager on the most entertaining qualifying matches from the entire world. 

 

That led UEFA to introduce two new assistant referees. Each one of them would be in a penalty box. They would assist with things like: 

 

  • whether a ball had crossed the goal or not;
  • to assist the main referee if a play is a corner kick or a goal kick;
  • and also to help with penalty kicks. 

 

The 1xBet online bookmaker is also available for those who wish to wager on the most entertaining UEFA-sanctioned competitions. The reasoning behind this decision was that the game was too fast to be properly followed by the linesmen and main referees.

Great success

This concept was tried between 2008 and 2012 in some youth UEFA competitions. These trials were quite successful, and led to the introduction of these new assistants in other tournaments organized by this entity. You can go to 1xBet - one of Uganda betting apps can be downloaded for free now and use it to wager on UEFA tournaments. 

 

The Champions League, the Euro Cup and many other tournaments had these assistants. They helped the main officials a lot, and the number of mistakes and wrong calls was reduced substantially. 

 

In general the idea was quite good. However, it was never implemented outside of European football matches. Additionally, things changed when Gianni Infantino became FIFA’s president. Almost since his first day in office he started to support the addition of technology to football matches, which resulted in things like VAR. Obviously, with this tool, these assistants were no longer necessary. The 1xBet Uganda betting apps are one of the best software of its kind available, and it can also be used to wager when VAR comes into action.
