Premier League Approve HawkEye to be Used As Goal-Line Technology for 2013-14 Season

Today, the Premier League approved the use of HawkEye goal-line technology, which will be used by all 20 Premier League sides beginning with the 2013-14 season that’ll kick off in August.

A competing technology, GoalControl, will be used at this summer’s FIFA Confederations Cup. And, if successful in Brazil, will be used next summer at the 2014 World Cup.

HawkEye is a technology developed by a British company. You may be familiar with how HawkEye works if you’ve watched Wimbledon where they use the technology to determine whether serves or shots are inside or outside the line. A video is included below that goes into more detail about how HawkEye works.

The Premer League will be the first league to use the goal-line technology. The league should be applauded for being on the cutting edge and pushing through technology which will greatly help the game.
