FIFA approves goal-live technology created by a German company

The system will be used in the Premier League and the 2014 World Cup.

German firm CAIROS developed technology that is based on magnetic fields where sensors in the goal are activated when the ball crosses the line.

CAIROS has met all of the requirements set out by FIFA for its goal-line technology… which passed all of the test criteria, and was subsequently granted an official licence by FIFA for goal-line technology,” reads the official statement of the company.

FIFA pledged to introduce the goal-line technology at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil while the Premier League is set to start using the system next season.
