In the next 10 years, football will significantly change (Part 3)

Liverpool is at the forefront of the football technology revolution

However, there will be changes in the format of existing tournaments. We can see a Champions League season with 48 clubs taking part, divided into 8 groups of 6 teams each. And even the second division, the Europa League, will be expanded. Or the rebirth of a European third division tournament like the old C3 cup.

The European Super League is still the trump card of the continent’s most powerful and powerful clubs. The current domestic tournament by establishing a league of their own. This card has been used for 20 years and it will still be a dipper for the next 20 years.

But the most dramatic change is in television. Imagine you are watching a football match on TV, but instead of sitting on the sofa, you can choose a seat in the stadium and experience football like watching live. Virtual reality is the future of football on television, even though it is currently only in the game.

TV viewers can have virtual reality experiences on sports and other entertainment through technology. Even if you only watch from afar, it feels as if you are there. 10 years ago, 138 of the 380 Premier League matches each season were broadcast live. This season, 200 matches will be shown live, more than 50%.

OTT and Virtual Reality will change the way football is viewed

Elsewhere throughout Europe, every match in major tournaments can be accessed by TV viewers for live view. Therefore, the Premier League will be under pressure and forced to change with the trend. The price of television rights in the Premier League will drop significantly in three seasons from 2019 to 2022.

The price reduction of local television rights led to another change. That’s the way big clubs are looking to increase direct links with fans around the globe to give them access to exclusive video content. This ability is very practical because it helps the rich clubs become richer.

But the relationship between clubs and NHM globally will also change. Now, with NHM, every football club will be just like the Netflix movie app, just pay and watch content on demand. This will explode as the online broadcast service (OTT) grows and reaches millions of audiences.

Rules may also change. Football is proud to be a conservative sport, rarely changing the rules of the game. But when a reform was made, it greatly affected football. Handcuffing the goalkeeper with the back of the ball is probably the most important change to football rules in the last half century, and it makes the speed of playing football increase immediately.

Over the next 10 years, perhaps the reforms that will address the extremely sensitive issue are “offside”. How is offside in the new definition, what are the technologies for determining offside? It is all about making the match more interesting and interesting. Right now, the FA is testing the offside rule in amateur competitions to evaluate its effectiveness.

What about the physical condition of a player? This is a big question. It seems the physical strength of the players in the English Premier League is not much better even though they are more methodically trained and harsher. Hard to believe, but that’s the truth.

The future of football will not necessarily see players being able to run more in a match, but almost certainly, they will have to run faster on a more regular basis.

The latest advanced fitness techniques will help players perform sprints at a higher intensity during a match. The old box-to-box midfielder that has to run up and run for 90 minutes will be a thing of the past as well as the form of endurance training by making the team run cross-country and run up the mountain, too.

The change of the European Cup is also a seriously studied aspect. The future of the Champions League will become an “elephant in the fridge”. UEFA, the Association of European Clubs (ECA), leagues and football leagues will not be able to negotiate future changes until 2024. Thus, from now until 2029, the Champions League will remain is the most prestigious tournament.

2019 is the last year of the 2010s and we are going to enter the new decade 2020. So what can be with football in the next 10 years?

In the next 10 years, science technology will have a big role in football. Football is behind many other professional sports in the scientific way, but in the past 10 years, many Premier League teams, such as Liverpool, have had a team of analysts, sports scientists. , data experts and professional coaches to assist.

Simon Data, founder of the Training Ground Guru website, said that data science will become a huge thing in the next 10 years. Clubs are collecting vast amounts of data at the moment: GPS tracking; The cameras collect information about every player’s behavior anywhere, anytime; data on health and fitness, blood. The most notable is the use of that data.

According to Austin, Liverpool and Man City have used computers to create simulation models, determining where the players should be in certain situations, based on monitoring the behavior and performance of the players.

Another major change in the nascent tactic is sure to spread over the next decade. That’s the end of the focus on Zone 14 – as the tactician calls it – a Golden square in front of the opponent’s 16m50 area. Over the years, coaches have focused on developing offensive plans in this area.

Increasingly, players in charge of the game have increasingly sought out other Golden areas to find ways to attack. For example, Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah are seldom present in Zone 14 but they are still the gateway to launch effective and terrifying attacks.

At Man City, Pep Guardiola has focused on the flow of traffic between the central defender and the anchor midfielder – which provided the attacking ball for 85% of City’s goals last season. Mourinho’s stealthy counter-attack style was obsolete due to the appearance of this new type of tactical analysis.
