Referee of a football match – In a previous article, I talked about how important VAR has become in the game of football. Now I would like to take a further step and think about a detail. And that’s when the Race director has become a superfluous presence during a football game. So one might think that games could also be played without referees. Which is absolutely impossible. Above all, with all the development that football has undergone in its games, it can also be said that the referee can no longer function on the field as he does now.

We can start with the detail that during the game, in addition to the referee’s eyes, there are a truly enormous number of cameras and visual devices. So what the referee sees is a part of the entire group of players playing at that moment. It must be added that there are collaborators on the fringes. But some of them also look like the race director. Furthermore, a single race director sees 180 degrees, as far as the human eye can see.
There is also a necessary distinction to be made. This means that the referee of a high-profile match is on an equal footing with the referee of a less important match. Where there aren’t many cameras and where the fairness of the game depends entirely on the ability to distinguish right from wrong.
To sum it up: There is no denying that there are different games in the championships. More or less important. More or less titled. And more or less framed by internal or external television systems. With this in mind, we could start to distinguish between games in which the referee plays a fundamental role. This means that the games in the lower divisions are played on the furthest away pitches. And then games where the referee is an invisible hand in front of all the films playing. Games that can be easily watched from above in a control room for a better view. Not as a simple spectator, but as a race director.
