FIFA issues third goal-line technology licence

Feb 26 2013, 2:38am CST | by

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 26 (IANS) World football's governing body FIFA has approved a third company to provide goal-line technology.

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 26 — World football's governing body FIFA has approved a third company to provide goal-line technology.

German firm Cairos will be among the bidders to install systems for next year's World Cup in Brazil and the 2013-14 Premier League season, reports Xinhua.

The Cairos system is similar to the German-Danish GoalRef prototype already approved by FIFA. Both use a magnetic chip inside the ball which is activated when crossing the goal line.

The other licensed system is the Sony-owned Hawk Eye, used successfully in tennis and cricket, which comprises a series of strategically placed cameras around the stadium.

"We have met all of the requirements set out by FIFA for its goal-line technology which passed the test criteria and was subsequently granted an official licence," Cairos said in a statement Monday.

FIFA revealed last week it is seeking tenders to implement goal-line technology at June's Confederations Cup in Brazil and the World Cup a year later.

In case you haven't noticed, most of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) belts are no longer owned by Brazilian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters. Just ask Anderson Silva, he'll tell you why. Jose Aldo, though, is holding down the fort for his fellow countrymen, as he remains the last Brazilian titleholder inside the Octagon; th ...

Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes gave fight fans the kind of treat they've been looking for on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro. Conor McGregor gave people something, too, but it was a mix of intrigue, over exposure, frustration and genuine glee. We'll talk about ...
