The role of the Analyst

Following approval by the IFAB for the use of small handheld technologies on the bench, FIFA is set to offer all the teams at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ a technical setup for match analysts and coaching team to interact.

FIFA, for the first time at one of its tournaments, will provide real-time positional data and video footage to the team’s analysts positioned on the media tribune as well as a stable connection down to the coaching team next to the pitch that can use this information for immediate action. The animation explains this interaction in more detail.
