Hawk-Eye goal-line technology system chosen by English Premier League to be utilised from the start of next season.

The English Premier League announced today that Hawk-Eye goal-line technology will be used during matches next season.

In doing so the League became the first leading domestic competition to approve a goal-line technology system, with Hawk-Eye selected for use from next season.

The camera-based ball-tracking system, which has been successfully deployed in tennis and cricket, was chosen on Thursday (11th April) ahead of three rival FIFA-sanctioned products.

Hawk-Eye, which is owned by Sony, sends a signal within a second of the ball crossing the line to the referee, who has the power to make the final decision on a disputed goal.
