The International Football Association Board (IFAB) has approved the use of goal-line technology (GLT) in football matches after a nine-month testing period.

The IFAB said that, following a second and final test phase, which comprised field tests, training sessions, laboratory tests and live professional matches of GoalRef technology and Hawk-Eye visual/image processing solution, the board approved in principle the technology of both companies.

During May and June, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, or Empa, assessed the reliability, accuracy and robustness of each system.

The association noted in a statement that a final installation test at each stadium was required before the systems could be used in “real” football matches.

The call for the introduction of goal-line technology followed the ruling out of England’s Frank Lampard’s goal during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, even though the ball clearly crossed the line.

Meanwhile, after a two-year experiment, the IFAB approved the use of two additional assistant referees in football matches, as they could provide support in officiating football matches, the association said.

The company further noted that it would be revising the wording of specific laws of the game linked to the field of play, the method of scoring, the ball and the referee, as well as addressing the additional assistant referees.
