IFAB set to approve goal-line systems

Published Add your comment

The long wait for goal-line technology will reach its conclusion on Thursday when football's law-makers meet to approve two systems.

The International FA Board (IFAB) are set to give the go ahead to both the Hawk-Eye and the GoalRef systems, which will give the green light to the Premier League and Football Association introducing the technology into their competitions.

A comprehensive series of tests have been carried out on the systems by Swiss scientists and IFAB sources have confirmed to the Press Association that both Hawk-Eye and GoalRef will be deemed to have passed the tests satisfactorily.
