|Vote on Goal-line technology|
|daib0||5 July 2012|
A thousand miles away, but just round the corner in spirit
Goal-line technology is set to get the go-ahead when the International Football Association Board (IFAB) vote today over whether to use it. The results of testing will be heard before IFAB are expected to approve the Hawk-Eye and the GoalRef systems. The Premier League and Football Association can then introduce the technology into their competitions.
FA chairman David Bernstein and general secretary Alex Horne have travelled to Zurich to take part in the vote. The English FA and their Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland counterparts each has a single vote, while Fifa - world football's governing body - has four. Any law change needs at least six of the eight votes.
