Technology takes another step into the world of football as the Premier League will be the first domestic league to use goal-line technology during its matches.
Owned by Sony, British based Hawk-Eye is the company that will bring the technology to the league.
Since Frank Lampard’s World Cup goal was disallowed in 2010 the argument has raged on and now that the technology is available for use, the 2013/14 campaign of the Premier League will see it in place for the first time.
Although approved for domestic play, European matches will not have the technology as UEFA president Michel Platini has been and is still an outspoken dissenter of goal line technology.
Saturday, August 17 will see the start of the 2013/14 Premier League season and a new era of football.
