Goal-line technology ready for 2014 World Cup

Text size Aa Aa

Despite organisers working around the clock to have all 12 stadiums ready in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Goal-line technology is already in place and will be available to officials this summer.

Germany-based company GoalControl will supply the system following a successful trial during the Confederations Cup in Brazil last year.

GoalControl ensures the ball’s position is continuously and automatically captured in 3D sending a signal to the referee’s watch within a second to confirm that a goal has been scored.
