According to Ramon Suzara of organisers the Philippine Superliga (PSL), a ground-breaking Hawkeye replay system will be implemented at the Women’s Club World Championship to assist the competition's referees.
The state-of-the-art computer system, Hawk-Eye uses seven high-performance cameras located in strategic positions to track plays. It is used in top-tier volleyball events like the FIVB Volleyball World Championships, the World League and World Grand Prix.
Aside from Hawk-Eye, also set to be used is the tablet system, which helps to track match events including substitutions.
Implemented at last year’s edition of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship in Zurich, coaches are provided with a tablet from Data Volley that is wirelessly connected to the table officials, enabling them to enter their starting roster and requests for substitutions, timeouts, and challenges with ease.
Data Volley will also use S-Score sheets in providing game statistics.
“This will be the first time our local fans see these world-class volleyball technologies in action,” said Suzara. “With the use of these cutting-edge technologies, we will be able to provide spectators both in front of TV and at the venue a better understanding of the game.”
Suzara added they would also use the Senoh Ball Transport System that was first used in the ongoing PSL Grand Prix.
The flooring will be the Gerflor tri-color volleyball floor and there will be LED digital boards at courtside.Related article:Women’s Club World Championship introduces new ball transport system
