Two Goal Line Systems To Get Final Test (UK)

AP Sports reports that goal-line technology could be introduced in soccer by the end of the year after two systems were approved Saturday for a final round of testing ahead of a vote in July.

The International Football Association Board chose Hawk-Eye and GoalRef to help provide fast and accurate rulings on disputed goals. The board assessed the test results from eight systems.

English Football Association general secretary Alex Horne said the two high-tech aids will be “tested to destruction,” before they can be approved for use in matches at a meeting of the IFAB on July 2.
