Dens Park could be the first stadium in Scotland to see vanishing spray used in a match.

The Scottish FA have announced that the spray will be introduced in this year’s Scottish Cup before being rolled out to all of the country’s senior leagues and cup competitions.

John Beaton will be the first referee with the spray in a domestic match in Scotland when he takes charge of this weekend’s opening Scottish Cup fifth round clash between Dundee and Celtic.

John Fleming, the SFA’s Head of Referee Operations, said: “Vanishing spray is a simple yet effective tool which will aid our referees in their management of set piece situations. Based on the current application and widespread use around the world, vanishing spray will undoubtedly enhance the reputation of our game.

“We are pleased to be able to roll the spray out across our senior leagues and cup competitions and look forward to seeing the benefits from this weekend in the William Hill Scottish Cup fifth round.â€

Used by referees to help mark the required distance of 10 yards between the ball and opposition players from a set piece scenario, vanishing spray caught the imagination of football fans around the world when it made its FIFA World Cup debut in Brazil last year. It is now used in 13 countries around Europe.

The spray will be introduced to the Scottish Professional Football League, Lowland League and Highland League, including the promotion/relegation play-offs, as well as the League and Challlenge cups.

The Scottish FA’s elite referees trialled the spray at their recent winter training camp in La Manga ahead of its introduction for the second half of the season.
