Hawk-eye technology launched at the Emirates

Hawk-eye technology launched at the Emirates

The FA chiefs unveiled the Hawk-Eye goal technology at the Emirates and are set to equip all Premier League stadiums by the beginning of the season. One system costs £250,000 and will be installed at clubs’ expense.

It is reported that the system will inform the referees through the watch or communication system in less than a second if the ball had crossed the line.

The system consists of six 320 frames per second cameras around the goal, providing 3D images of the ball at the line if necessary.

Premier League press officer Anthony Taylor informed: ”What we are dealing with here is a matter of fact, whether the ball is over the line or not. The speed of the game makes it impossible to be in line for every decision. Hopefully it will make life easier for referees.”

Arsene Wenger, however, was a little more sceptical about the project: ”It’s very important that there is justice. It’s a bit more sophisticated and complicated than you would imagine.”

The Hawk-Eye goal technology will be first applied during the Community Shield final on Sunday.
