Goal-line technology set up ahead of FIFA Confederations Cup

Goal-line technology (GLT) is on track to feature at the FIFA Confederations Cup for the first time after FIFA confirmed in April the appointment of GoalControl GmbH as the official GLT provider for the tournament.

Final preparations are currently taking place across each of the venues with the GoalControl system being set up and tested as part of the official certification process defined in the GLT Testing Manual.

FIFA is pleased to provide broadcasters with HD quality footage showing the GoalControl system installed at the Maracanã Stadium, Castelão and Fonte Nova as well as the testing process conducted by the Swiss independent test institute EMPA (the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology).

Furthermore, a media briefing for accredited media is scheduled to take place at the Maracanã Stadium on 14th June with a detailed update on the implementation of GLT at the FIFA Confederations Cup and on the GoalControl system. Further details will be communicated to media shortly.
