English Premier League approves goal-line technology from the 2013-14 season

The English Premier League has voted to introduce goal-line technology from the 2013-14 season. British-based Hawk-Eye has been awarded the contract to provide the system, reports BBC.

Hawk-Eye uses seven cameras per goal to detect the ball and claims its system is “millimetre accurate, ensuring no broadcast replays could disprove the decision.”

The Football Association will install a system at Wembley Stadium in time for August’s Community Shield.

Top-flight clubs voted to adopt the system during a meeting of the 20 Premier League chairmen on Thursday.

Once work is under way, installation of the system for the 17 Premier League clubs who avoid relegation and the three teams promoted from the Football League is expected to take up to six weeks to complete.
