The GAA have just announced that they will be using a ‘smart sliotar’ for the upcoming 2023 season.

The sliotar has a chip embedded into it that can be read through the use of a mobile device.

The new smart sliotar will be used this weekend in the opening Allianz League games and will feature in every game for the rest of the year.

The GAA released a statement outlining the benefits of the sliotar.

“The new chip technology will help ensure that-sliotars perform consistently and in line with the GAA sliotar specifications which underpin the integrity of the game, both as a contest and as spectacle.”

 “I warmly welcome the introduction of the new standardised chipped SMART sliotar which comes into full use at senior inter-county level this weekend with the commencement of the Allianz Hurling Leagues.” said GAA president Larry McCarthy.

“Not only will it provide the game with consistency through the performance of the sliotar but of no less importance we have sight of the ethical production of the sliotars.

“I would like to acknowledge the body of work undertaken by the working group over a prolonged period and I look forward to the positive impact that this project is going to have on the game.”
