The world’s smallest football league kicked off the season in style recently with a new piece of tech, and help from Vodafone. The two-team football league on the Isles of Scilly, off the coast of Cornwall, used a well-known Video-Assistant Referee system with a twist. Thanks to Vodafone’s 5G network, the first game of the season was introduced to FAR: Fan-Assistant Refereeing, a world first. The huge capacity, faster speeds, and quick response times of Vodafone’s 5G service are a great way to bring supporters unable to attend a match closer to the action. Not only does 5G offer a richer viewing experience, but higher levels of connectivity allow customers to communicate simultaneously when network demand is at its peak. This opens up a new range of possibilities for fans to experience and enjoy their favourite sports online.

While many football fans across the globe enjoy being armchair referees, it’s supporters of the Garrison Gunners and Woolpack Wanderers on the Isles of Scilly who can now officially claim that title as their own.

Showcasing the benefits of Vodafone 5G, the FAR system put supporters across the island at the heart of the game. Equipped with Samsung S10 5G handsets, fans were able to review incidents just after they happened. And instead of catching up on the ref’s decisions after the game, supporters on the main island of St Mary’s were able to have their own say on several fouls, a disputed goal, and two contested penalties as the game was being played.
