The game's rulemaker, IFAB, said last month it was continuing to review the offside law and planned to test technology that would allow for 'semi-automatic' decisions to limit the need for long waits for VAR reviews.

Wenger, however, said he supported the 'automated' offside technology, which directly informs a referee's assistant if an incident is offside.

According to FIFA https://www.fifa.com/who-we-are/news/fifa-organises-remote-demonstration-of-advanced-offside-technology, semi-automated offside technology provides VAR with additional information before the referee makes the final call.

  F1 announces Miami's iconic Hard Rock Stadium will join the schedule The round in Miami, the first in the sport's history, becomes the second F1 race to be staged in the USA, with Austin's Circuit of the Americas a permanent fixture on the calendar since 2012. New F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: 'We are thrilled to announce that Formula One will be racing in Miami beginning in 2022.'The US is a key growth market for us, and we are greatly encouraged by our growing reach in the US which will be further supported by this exciting second race.

"The automated offside I think will be ready for 2022," Wenger, FIFA's head of football development, was quoted as saying in The Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fifa-ready-to-use-automated-offsides-at-2022-world-cup-in-qatar-says-ars-ne-wenger-n0smzfrpj.

"I'm pushing very hard to have the automated offsides, which means straight away the signal goes to the linesman.

"On average, the time we have to wait is around 70 seconds, sometimes 1 minute and 20 seconds... It is so important because we see many celebrations are cancelled after that for marginal situations."

Last month, former Netherlands forward Marco van Basten called on football's lawmakers to consider scrapping the offside rule, saying the game would be better off without it.
