Following on from the one Brazilian success story from the World Cup, it is reported that UEFA are sanctioning the use of the “invisible spray” for the Champions League and Europa League for the 2014/2015 season.

Providing it passes the test at the European Under-17 Championships in May, the governing body will use it from next season onwards and other leagues across Europe are already discussing the feasibility of equipping their referees with the product.

Howard Webb Vanishing Spray

English referee Howard Webb gets to grip with the foam dispensing device ahead of the World Cup.

So far Italy has adopted the spray for both Serie A and Serie B, with English Premier League referees chief Mike Riley presenting a report which is thought to be in favour of the foam. La Liga is also widely reported to be adapting the product’s use in Football matches.

At a cost of around £3 per can, and a time period of approximately one-two minutes before the foam evaporates, Heine Allegmagne’s invention which he holds the International patent for is set go global, which will surely make him one of the most famous inventors in the world.
