Fifa runs rule over goal-line options
Tuesday 12 October 2010
Fifa is studying 13 different goal-line technology systems which could help match officials make more accurate decisions. Fifa said yesterday that all the project proposals were presented last week, and will be further discussed at a meeting later this month of the International Football Association Board.
The IFAB panel will gather in Newport, Wales, to help set the agenda for its annual meeting next March when the laws of football can be changed.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter reopened the debate on using technology to help match officials after a series of mistakes affected the World Cup in South Africa, and helped eliminate England and Mexico.
The panel is also scheduled to discuss worldwide trials using additional officials behind each goal to help referees rule on penalty-area decisions.
