The International Hockey Federation (FIH) will continue the use of video umpire team referrals at the Hero Honda FIH World Cup, beginning here from Feb 28.
Under the current procedure, umpires may refer decisions to the video umpire when they are not convinced that they have taken, or are able to take, the correct decision relating to the awarding or disallowing goals, FIH said in a statement.
In addition, and on the basis of the trial that was undertaken at the ABN AMRO Champions Trophy in Melbourne, Australia at the end of last year, each team will be allowed one team referral during the match (i.e. including any extra time periods and penalty stroke competitions). If a referral is upheld, the referring team will retain its right of referral.
