What does the future of football look like?Goalline technology, free kick spray, stadiums with closing roofs – this is all soooo 2014. The question we want answered, is how will football be played in 20 years? Here are a few predictions
1. The mobile Arena
Expensive away day journeys will be a thing of the past in 2034. The stadiums will be the ones travelling across top European leagues. Powered by four gigantic high-speed turbines, the mobile arena will pick up the away fans in their home city and make its way to the desired location at a brisk 300 km/h (180 mph). The stadium will gently land in the city centre, where home fans wait patiently to be let in.
3. The training assistant
The LumièreX9 will revolutionise training and tactic talks. The robust 5D projector can be used to project lifelike holograms at a distance of up to 30 metres. Proton air compression gives the projections a physical robustness, making them perfect for free kick and corner training.
5. Always in control
Gone are the days when trainers would scream their hearts out on the touchline. Managers can now give clear directions to their players, which will then appear on their LenScreen contact lens interface.
6. Health Checks
The HealthBug 700 is a sensor and mini-lab in one. A small chip is inserted under the player’s skin, allowing biometric data and performance stats to be sent directly to the manager’s control pad. The coach will always have an eye on his players and know exactly when a change is needed.
