Italian Serie A has approved goal-line technology for next season
Italian soccer league Serie A has approved goal-line review technology for use next season, according to an announcement from league president Maurizio Beretta on Friday.
Beretta said the vote of approval was unanimous, and that the league would consider three systems for the coming season, including the one used in the English Premier League and the one selected by FIFA for use in last year's World Cup in Brazil.
Whichever system is selected could undergo testing during the Italian Cup final on June 7 or in August during the Italian Super Cup, Beretta added.
The German Bundesliga also decided to implement goal-line technology next season, voting 15-3 in favor in December. The German league will use the same system as the Premier League, utilizing multiple cameras to track activity along the goal line.
Carlo Tavecchio, the Italian soccer federation president, has supported the use of goal-line technology in the past and has offered Serie A to FIFA as a guinea pig for the technology, should the sport's international governing body decide to adopt the system.
