Pilot projects testing the use of smart technology against discrimination and racism at the stadium have been launched at three Dutch top division clubs, the Dutch football federation (KNVB) announced on Wednesday. Three projects are underway at the Feyenoord (Rotterdam), PSV (Eindhoven) and PEC (Zwolle) stadiums, and a fourth could be launched this year, the KNVB said in a statement. Until now, “the video images available in combination with sound recordings have too often failed as proof” of discrimination, noted the Dutch federation.
