Body, FIFA, has named GoalControl GmbH, a Germany-based company, the
official Goal-line Technology provider for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
It said the company performed well during the FIFA Confederations Cup in April.
The world football governing body said, “Today’s announcement follows
an evaluation process in which the relevant departments within FIFA
examined the use of GoalControl-4D during the FIFA Confederations Cup.
“While there were no goal-line incidents in which the technology was
required to determine whether a goal had been scored, the system met all
necessary FIFA requirements.
“It indicated every one of the 68 goals correctly. Importantly, there
was also a high-level of satisfaction reported by match officials.”
It added that the GLT would be used at the FIFA Club World Cup slated for December 11 to 21 in Morocco.
