Tuesday 19 February 2013
Fifa has confirmed that goal-line technology will be in place for the 2014 World Cup. The technology was tested at the Club World Cup in December, and Fifa will now roll it out for this summer's Confederations Cup and next year's World Cup.
Fifa said in a statement: "After a successful implementation of Goal-Line Technology (GLT) at the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan in December 2012, Fifa has decided to use GLT at the Fifa Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 and 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil."
Hawk-Eye and GoalRef both have Fifa approval and are set to compete, along with two other German manufacturers, for the World Cup rights.
