GAA reveal how their new Hawk-Eye system will work at Croker

‘Put it up, umpire!’

THE GAA HAVE revealed how their new Hawk-Eye system will work during championship games at HQ.

The Association say the ‘primary protocal’ entails:

  • an umpire making a ‘box signal’ to indicate a request for Hawk-Eye.
  • the ref then makes a box signal to request the system is used.
  • The Hawk-Eye replay, like above, is shown on the Croke Park big screen.
  • The ref confirms if the decision is a point, miss, etc.

These are the icons that will flash up for the fans:
