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.

Jose Aldo: Chad Mendes hasn’t evolved, and I’m going to beat him again

Buses are the future of urban transport. No, really

Aug 27 2014 5:46am CDT | Source: the guardian

Buses! Buses! thundered the tall man, rapping the cafe table between us, the cutlery threatening to vibrate right off the edge. It was October of 2013, we had just tucked into lunch on the first day of the Urban Age conference in balmy Rio de Janeiro, and ...
