The Role of Technology in Modern Sporting Events: How It's Changing the Game

 

Technology and sports have been closely linked for many decades now. Almost every sport has changed in some way due to improvements in technology; whether itís VAR and goal-line technology or the improvements in the playing surfaces and equipment used by players - technology has played a huge role in making sports safer, more fun and more accessible. 

 

In this article, weíll be looking at some of the biggest technological advancements in sports, starting with arguably the most common use of technology in sports broadcasting - the instant replay. 

 

Instant replay 

 

Instant replay is one of the most prevalent technological advancements and is used frequently in many different sports around the world. It was first introduced in the 1960s and has been used in sports including American football, European football, basketball, baseball, hockey and tennis to name just a few. 

 

Instant replay not only improves the viewing experience for fans watching on TV but it also assists referees so they can make better decisions on the field. Although some people argue that it can interrupt the pace of a game or remove the human element, itís viewed by most people positively since it makes it easier to analyze the game for both fans and officials. 

 

Virtual reality

 

Although virtual reality is still very much in its infancy, itís being used more and more in sports. Fans can experience games in VR that makes them feel like theyíre actually inside the stadium. The NBA has been particularly forward thinking where VR is concerned and has made it a key part of their programming. 

 

In the future, as VR headsets become more lightweight, itís likely theyíll be used by athletes for training purposes to improve their game. 

 

VAR and goal-line technology

 

Two huge changes that technology has brought about in European football is the use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) and goal-line technology. Goal-line technology has been used widely in the sport for the last decade and has helped remove any element of doubt about whether the ball is over the goal line or not. 

 

VAR is another big change thatís been recently introduced and although it can be controversial, it has helped to provide officials with more information to base their decisions on. Itís mostly used for offside calls, fouls and penalties. 

 

Streaming

 

Streaming has become a huge business over the last decade or so and sports have definitely benefited from this. Major streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video and Hulu offer sports streaming as part of their schedule. In addition to this, there are also dedicated streaming services for sports, including DAZN and EPSN+. 

 

Streaming has helped various sports reach more fans and can be particularly good for growing an audience for more niche sports that might otherwise struggle to reach a wide audience. Those placing sports bets in Canada and worldwide can follow live events via streaming.

 

Wearable technology 

 

Wearable tech has become mainstream over the past few years and is now used by many people across the world, including professional athletes. Lightweight and easy-to-use fitness trackers enable athletes to precisely measure valuable metrics, including calories burned, heart rate and steps taken among other things. 

 

Wearable tech can also help with things like improving sleep patterns and even detecting potentially fatal issues, such as an irregular heartbeat. 

 

Sensors 

 

Sensors are another way that technology has impacted sports in a very positive way. There are a number of sports-specific sensors that are available now to help athletes measure and improve their performance. 

 

Sensors can be put in balls or on the end of bats, in the case of baseball and can provide players and their coaches with incredibly specific data to show the areas where they need to improve. 

 

Sensors arenít just used for training purposes though; theyíre also used in live sports events, with the balls used in the 2022 World Cup having sensors in them. 

 

Social media 

 

Although it doesnít directly impact what happens in a game, the impact of social media on sports in general has been huge. Itís given a way for fans to follow their favorite players and directly interact with them. Itís also provided big sports stars with a way to communicate directly without the need to go through an agent or newspaper. 

 

Conclusion

 

Technology has clearly had a huge impact in the sports world. Advancements have made many sports significantly safer as well as allowing for things like improved playing conditions, a better experience for fans and growing the popularity of sports with fans around the world. 

 

In the future, itís very likely that thereíll be many technological innovations in sport that we canít even imagine.
