Goal Line Technology To Be Used In Capital One Cup

Tue 17th Dec 2013 | IT & Technology

Goal Line Technology will be  used for the first time in domestic cup football after the Football League announced it would be using Goal Decision System.

The Goal Decision System (GDS) will be used at matches played in the Capital One Cup fifth round (and, subsequently, in the Semi-Finals and Final) at venues where it is currently installed.

Following testing in the last fortnight, FIFA have confirmed the Mitre Delta V12 ball - the Official Matchball of the Capital One Cup – is now calibrated to be used with Hawk-Eye’s ground-breaking system.  

The Goal Decision System has been used at all Premier League matches this season and has also been installed at Wembley Stadium.

Andy Williamson, The Football League’s Chief Operating Officer said: “The Football League is a long term supporter of the use of goal line technology even if its cost currently puts it beyond the reach of our own clubs.  

"In many ways, its use in cup football is even more important than in league football, as any decision about whether the ball has crossed the goal line can mean the difference between a club being knocked out or not – and could even determine the eventual Wembley winners.”
