Labosport is a FIFA Research Institute:

  • 国际足联研究机构增加对足球技术与创新分区的持续支持
  • 项目横跨国际足联研究、质量和创新计划以及足球技术团队。
  • 每两年将接受一次成为国际足联研究机构的申请,每个机构都需要满足规定的资格标准,并同意在科学杂志上发表工作的规定。






  • 在任期内提供商定数量的技术和人力资源,分配给国际足联足球技术与创新分部门的相关研究领域。
  • 通过承诺在同行评议的期刊上发表他们的研究结果,使更广泛的体育研究界受益。
  • 为国际足联质量计划的技术咨询小组(TAG)的讨论提供经验证据,该小组为每个产品类别制定测试标准和要求。

Labosport have worked closely with FIFA since the inception of the Quality Programme for Football Turf in 2001. Throughout this time, Labosport have tested products and field installations around the world, and their research and innovation has helped to bring new test methods and standards to the FIFA Quality Programme.

In addition to playing surfaces, Labosport are also involved in other FIFA Quality Programmes such as Goal-line Technology, Futsal Surfaces and the FIFA Quality Programme for Football Goals. Labosport’s core contribution as a FIFA Research Institute will be to accelerate numerous projects to better understand playing surfaces (both natural and synthetic), and to translate this knowledge into new test methods and standards.

Sports Labs’ collaboration with FIFA started in 2005 with a relationship that utilised their expertise in testing surfaces and a variety of different sporting equipment. Since then, as a FIFA Accredited Test Institute in 7 different quality programmes that include everything from playing surfaces to wearable technologies, Sports Labs has become a core contributor to the Research and Standards team.

Whilst one of their key strengths is in understanding the interaction between the player and the surface, their diverse experience across the majority of the FIFA Quality Programmes puts them in a strong position to develop new test methods across the board. Examples range from adapting existing test methods for new offside technologies to developing new measurement techniques for the quality of footballs.

Victoria University (VU) first worked with FIFA in 2016 carrying out fundamental research to establish the feasibility of a standard to assess the accuracy of Electronic Performance Tracking Systems (EPTS). This early research led FIFA to develop and refine a test protocol, which has now assessed over 40 different tracking systems.

VU, a FIFA Accredited Test Institute for EPTS, has recently expanded its EPTS testing to include tracking provided from broadcast video (FIFA Basic), and skeletal tracking used for applications such as semi-automated offside technology.

VU and FIFA will continue to collaborate to generate further knowledge on how technologies can be assessed beyond measuring accuracy and how they can be best understood to help improve the game.


  • 与足球技术与创新分局合作5年
  • 为商定的FIFA研究项目分配固定数额的研究资源
  • 申请前至少发表5篇科学论文,并在其作为国际足联研究机构的任期内有专门的资源用于发表。
  • 可证明的跨学科研究技能新的国际足联研究机构的申请期将每两年开放一次,下一次申请期将在2024年5月至8月进行。这一举措提供了一个很好的机会,可以最大限度地利用国际足联的研究资源,同时与业界和学术界合作,为现实世界的挑战做出贡献。
