In this article I’m going to take a look at some of the advances in refereeing technology, and explore the pros and cons of the beautiful game in the digital age. I would love to hear your personal and professional opinions in the comments.
We’ll start with a topic that has been on everyones lips for almost a decade now: goal-line technology.
To give you a little backstory, I’ll start with the main reason behind our decision to build the GOREF app. Firstly and most importantly the X100 Sports team, are passionate and fervent fans of the world game and wanted to combine their love of the game with a product for the Apple Watch. The fact that there wasn’t at the time a dedicated referee app for the Apple Watch (a rarity in the app world) gave the team an added incentive to create a world’s first with a product that combined the best of traditional referee digital watches with all the technological innovation of the Apple Watch.
