At a special meeting held in Zurich on July 5, 2012, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) approved the use of goal-line technology (GLT). GLT technology was undergoing a rigorous testing process for the past nine months and of the eight companies that took part in the first phase of testing only two systems -- Hawk-Eye and GoalRef -- successfully completed the entire process and will be now allowed to apply for FIFA goal-line technology licenses. This was a historic decision as for the first time in its history IFAB agreed to introduce technology to assist the referee in determining whether a goal has been scored. As we understand, however, the referee will retain absolute and ultimate authority to determine whether a goal should be awarded or not. The IFAB also stressed that “the technology will only be utilized for the goal line and no other areas of the game.” Moreover, the use of technology will not be mandatory for any national soccer associations. The decisions concerning GLT went into effect immediately. However, given the approval of GLT technology, IFAB stated that certain wording of Laws of the Game, “relating to Law 1 (The Field of Play); Law 2 (The Ball); Law 5 (The Referee); and Law 10 (The Method of Scoring)”, will have to be made in the immediate future. We, of course, will cover these changes when they are made.
