An Android Application for Real-time Referee Observers

Gregorio Bernabé, Javier Cuenca


Football matches are consolidated as the events with the greatest number of followers in the world. These matches are managed by a group of referees. An observer evaluates the referees by watching the match in the stadium and making notes about important determinations, including the main right and wrong decisions. We present an Android application for mobile devices to facilitate the task of the observer, allowing the observer to pay attention to the game and partially automating the report on referees.
