Premier League welcomes IFAB decision

The Premier League is looking to introduce goal-line technology ‘as soon as is practically possible’ after FIFA approved its use on Thursday.

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke revealed that Hawk-Eye and GoalRef systems will be implemented at the 2012 Club World Cup in December after the International Football Association Board approved of results from goal-line technology trials.

Chelsea will get to experience it first hand when they fly over to Tokyo for the tournament thanks to their Champions League triumph in May.

And goal-line technology could be on its way to the Premier League after the league released a statement praising the board’s decision, indicating that it would look to implement the system as soon as possible.

“The Premier League has been a long-term advocate of goal line technology,” the statement read.

“We will engage in discussions with both Hawk-Eye and GoalRef in the near future with a view to introducing goal-line technology as soon as is practically possible.”

England’s top flight has been involved in the development of goal-line technology since 2006.

HawkEye tests took place at Fulham’s Craven Cottage and Reading’s training ground during non-competitive scenarios.
