LaLiga Santander: The SOS of the referees goes official statement


D.After the controversy created after the Cdiz-Elchewhere a failure in the VAR caused an illegal goal to be validated by poncethe Technical Committee of referees has released an official statement to clarify the situation.

The referees committee wanted to send its message after everything that happened. They have recognized the mistake in the appointment of Nuevo Mirandilla, apologized and explained how to find possible solutions so that it does not happen again.


As the full statement reads:

The Technical Committee of Referees, as an autonomous entity of the RFEF, works in the continuous search for improvements to achieve excellence in their professional development.

Putting an end to human error is not possible, but it is possible in offside if the semi-automatic tool is applied. Because, We invite La Liga to implement the semi-automatic offside technology after the experience carried out by the RFEF in the last Spanish Super Cupwhich prevents any type of decision-making failure regarding this game action through the activation of a series of alerts that makes the tool infallible.

In this sense, from the CTA We announce that we will resume talks with the LNFP. Spanish football deserves to continue growing in a cutting-edge context to avoid situations that can be corrected with the application of technology.

The semi-automatic offside will also be carried out in the Copa del Rey final, since the implementation of this technology can only be carried out in the First Division Champions League stadiums and not in the rest of the First and Second division. The CTA has already taken the strictest internal disciplinary measures that will affect some already announced designations..
