Hawk-Eye to provide Premier League goal-line technology

The Premier League has voted to introduce goal-line technology from the 2013-14 season, reports BBC Sport. British-based Hawk-Eye has been awarded the contract to provide the system.

Hawk-Eye uses seven cameras per goal to detect the ball and claims its system is "millimetre accurate, ensuring no broadcast replays could disprove the decision".

The Football Association will install a system at Wembley Stadium in time for August's Community Shield.

Top-flight clubs voted to adopt the system during a meeting of the 20 Premier League chairmen on Thursday.
