By broadcasting images and audio recordings, “the fan experience will be improved, and it will promote a better understanding of the referee’s decisions by part of the audience,” the Spanish federation explained.
This joint action between the Spanish Federation and the Technical Committee of Referees in the Spanish League aims to achieve maximum transparency.
Many La Liga matches this season, particularly the one between Real Madrid and Barcelona, have seen a number of controversial refereeing decisions.
The Spanish Football Federation and the Spanish League are expected to be released in the coming days; With more information and educational materials on their social media, fans and media will understand how this new dynamic will work.
