Goal-Line Technology Update: February 2013

I have been following FIFA’s plans for goal-line technology.

My last update was in December.

Yesterday (19 February), FIFA announced:

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™.


FIFA has launched a tender process for the provision of GLT for the two competitions in Brazil.

Hawk-Eye and GoalRef, the two GLT providers licensed under FIFA’s Quality Programme for GLT, and other GLT providers in the licensing process (that have passed all relevant tests) will be invited to submit tenders.

A final decision about the successful tender is expected in early April.
