German company join roster to provide goalline technology
A third company has been licensed by Fifa to provide goalline technology systems, reports The Guardian. The German firm Cairos has had its system approved by the world governing body and will be able to tender for use in next year's World Cup and the Premier League.
The other two systems licensed are those produced by Hawk-Eye, the British firm now owned by Sony, and a German-Danish system called GoalRef.
A statement from the company said: "Cairos has met all of the requirements set out by Fifa for its goalline technology which passed all of the test criteria, and was subsequently granted an official licence by Fifa for goalline technology."
