Premier League to introduce goal-line technology for 2013/14 season

Premier League to introduce goal-line technology for 2013/14 season

Premier League officials confirmed all the clubs will be obliged to introduce goal-line systems in place before the beginning of 2013/14 season.

The Premier League is in the advanced stage of the negotiations with system providers GoalRef and Hawkeye. The technology has been successfully tested during the FIFA’s Club World Cup, which took place in Japan, in December. All of 21 goals scored by the football players in the competition have been properly registered.

Premier League teams have to prepare themselves for the installment of the systems in their stadia by the beginning of the next season. Premier League communications director Dan Johnson revealed: “We are in advanced discussions with two of the companies who provide the systems and we are working on the basis of having goal-line technology in place for the start of the season. All clubs will have to have the system to ensure the universal integrity of the competition, including those who are promoted.”
