FIFA Awards Fourth Goal-line Technology License

Fri 1st Mar 2013 | IT & Technology

FIFA has awarded GoalControl GmbH a license for its goal-line technology system GoalControl-4D.

The German based company joins CAIROS technologies AG, who were awarded a license on Monday (25th) and becomes the fourth company licensed by FIFA to provide goal-line technology.

GoalControl-4D uses 14 high-speed cameras located around the pitch which are directed at both goals.

The position of the ball is continually and automatically captured in three dimensions - using X, Y and Z co-ordinates - as soon as it approaches the goal-line. When the ball has completely crossed the line, the central analysis unit sends an encrypted signal to the referee’s watch in less than a second. GoalControl-4D can be used with both standard goalposts and balls.

GoalControl GmbH and FIFA signed the licensing contract after successful tests at Dusseldorf’s Esprit-Arena and the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen in February 2013 and will now participate in the tender to provide goal-line technology at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, as well as the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.
