Goal line technology to be dicussed at FIFA meeting.

Mon 14th Feb 2011 | Football Governance

The 125th International Football Association Board (IFAB) Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday 5 March 2011 at Celtic Manor, Newport, Wales.

The Agenda contains seven proposals and amendments related to the Laws of the Game. The issue of Goal-line Technology will also once again be on the Agenda.

In line with the discussions from the Annual Business Meeting held on 20 October 2010 (click here for details) a report will be presented to the IFAB, following an independently monitored testing phase of ten companies and their respective technology systems. These tests will be carried out between 7 and 13 February by the Zurich-based research institution EMPA.

The monitoring and technical analysis will be conducted under closed testing conditions at the Home of FIFA. This is to enable the testing team to be able to carry out their work without interruption/distraction from the public/media, and also to reserve the privacy of each individual technology company who have invested considerable sums in the development of their respective products.

An update on the status of the Additional Assistant Referees experiment will also be provided at the IFAB AGM, including the request by UEFA to use additional assistant referees for the duration of the EURO 2012 Final Tournament.
