Fifa Club World Cup: 3 things you should know 

It’s an electric Thursday in the UAE as the Fifa Club World Cup kicks off in Abu Dhabi. Despite rising concerns about omicron across the world, football fans are gearing up for an exciting time in UAE’s capital and they are ready for a never-seen-before edition of the tournament. 

Infused with AI 

Thanks to an innovative system, referees will be able to make more accurate offside calls. By placing a camera system on the roof of the stadium, an AI will track every player and the ball using 29 data points for every player. This information will be used to create a 3D render of the pitch which referees can use to review the play. Whether the calls will be controversial remains to be
seen. 

Fifa goes Arabian

For only the second time ever, three clubs from the region are being represented at the 18th edition of the Fifa Club World Cup UAE. Apart from the ADNOC Pro League UAE Champions 2020-21 Al Jazira Club, the other two are the AFC Champions League winners Al Hilal from Saudi Arabia and CAF Champions Al Ahly from Egypt.

A safer match for everyone

Fans attending the Fifa Club World Cup will be required to show their green status on the Alhosn app and a negative result from a test taken no more than 48 hours before entry.
