Soccer may seem the least tech-dependent game there is; all that’s required are feet and a ball. But even our most analog sport has benefited from technological advances as far back as the first World Cup in 1930.
And it’s not just balls and boots. Even the way we watch—particularly in this, the year of live 3D broadcasts—has changed the sport forever. So enjoy how far technology has brought the beautiful game, and be excited for where takes it in the future.
