Frankfurt - In view of the contrasting positions of FIFA and UEFA, as well as the unanswered questions regarding measurement precision, the executive board of the League Association has decided not to introduce goal-line technology in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 for the time being.

A final decision will not be made until the results of FIFA’s planned tests at the FIFA Club World Cup in December in Japan and at the Confederations Cup in the summer in Brazil have been evaluated. The introduction of goal-line technology for the start of the 2013/14 season is, therefore, not an issue at present.

Tests awaited

After consultation and analysis of a club survey, the management board concluded that opinions were split on the matter.
