    Al Rihla The official ball of the world's biggest sporting event, the Al Rihla is equipped with the Adidas Suspension System, a motion sensor that sends data 500 times per second. According to Tomorrow's World Today, the device is imperceptible to players and offers an "unprecedented view" of every element of a round's movement to improve the quality and speed of VAR (video assistant referee) decision-making. And semi-automatic offside technology.

Information is collected 50 times per second and provides an automatic offside alert to the referee when the striker is in an offside position. The positional data points generate 3D animations displayed on stadium screens, available to further explain decisions using FIFA broadcast partners.
