Video evidence in Switzerland without goal-line technology

Who knows the video evidence from the Bundesliga or the world Cup, could be disappointed in the coming summer. The Video, Assistant Referee (VAR) holds in the coming season in the Swiss Super League enter. But the Swiss do without for financial reasons, for the time being, a goal-line technology or virtual offside lines. "We know that we have not yet reached the end of the flag pole," says League President Heinrich Schifferle, "but, we will pull the Flag now."

even now, the costs for the relatively small Swiss League are remarkable. After the test phase, at a cost of 1.5 million francs, the same amount for the current operation is due per season. The test phase will be paid for by the Swiss football Association, is funding the introduction in the League. Thus, the previous referee will rise at a cost of 2.5 million Swiss francs per season to 4 million. Each of the ten Clubs in the highest Swiss League in the video evidence so costs 150’000 Swiss francs. Nevertheless, Schifferle says: "The club are delighted."


Daniel Wermelinger, the person in charge of the Department of referees of the Swiss football Association (SFV) is the clear Conviction: "The use of the Video referee makes the football correct. It can not be more that the audience sees at home in front of the TV, that is not a fault happens, only the referee in the stadium sees it."

in Addition, it is also important to keep the Swiss arbitrators "international market" as expressed by League President schifferle. "We can only have a good referee, if you are international. International you can whistle, if you know the VAR-System."

On the introduction of the VAR had already been last November, matched. 18 of 20 Clubs in the top two leagues had voted for an introduction. Since then, much has happened. At the time it is in the training phase, specifically 120 games, with the technical infrastructure has to be organised.

Clearly defined rules

Previously, are the a total of 18 Video referees and 10 Video wizard, in which it is active or resigned as Director and line judges over several months, theoretically, been trained. Every single step of the entire preparation phase of the screen is the rules of men's Football, the International Football Association Board (Ifab), is clearly defined. In July, the Switzerland has to be granted by this Board, the authorization for the use of the VAR.

specifically for the project, in a mandate relationship with employees of German Hellmut Krug is confident that the Association and League will have meet up all the requirements. This must take place in every stadium of the Super League Clubs in a game over 90 minutes with full camera cover.

at the heart of the technical infrastructure of the Video Operation Room BEFORE (), in which a Video-referee and his assistant as well as an Operator for the technical support work. Here, the interference of the VAR is regulated in accordance with the Ifab for four situations:

At the gates: the gate is a direct rule of the attacking advance violation of team? In the case of Penalty-scenes: incorrectly or Not at all punishable act Offense. In the event of possible court Offense or punishable act refer to:. During the game a Yellow or Red card confusion: for the false player.

camera is technically at the lower Limit

Even if the regulations of the Board of the procedure, the VAR seems to be clearly defined, Wermelinger is certain: "We will have discussions. We are going to discuss, would have had to intervene in the VAR here or not. And it is in the nature of the thing that the view will be, depending on the club. But so is the football."

In Switzerland can be accessed for viewing and analysis of the scenes in comparison to the Bundesliga, much less cameras. While in Germany, in the stadiums between 19 and 21 different perspectives to choose from, it's in Switzerland only 6 to 10. This is about the Ifab prescribed minimum number of four cameras. The Swiss project team is aware, of course, to ride at the lower Limit. In the interview, Krug is still convinced that the number will be enough to cameras. Change could negotiate their number in two years, if the League a new TV contract.
