Technology in sports is becoming ever more common as the technologically advancing world of today is evolving. Technology is being implemented across all areas of sports to achieve many different goals. This dissertation researches the technological tools which assist match officials of football, rugby, tennis and cricket, and the impact that these technologies have on the spectators. This study aims to explore the relevant literature relating to this topic area, including the relationship between sports and the spectators and the usage of current technology in sports and the media. Primary research methods will be then conducted through the use of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews to gather both qualitative and quantitative data. The results and findings will then be analysed with relevant literature and secondary data to conclude the findings of the investigation. The findings suggest these technologies are impacting the spectators in a positive manner and suggests that cricket is the sport which uses a decision review system most effectively. It has found that this technology slows the game down, but this is not an issue due to the slow nature of the game of cricket. The results also show that a mixed divide of spectators do believe that these decision review systems are slowing the gameplay down, but they also believe that the introduction of these technologies helps the spectators engage with the sport much better.
