FIFA Tests Goal-Line Tech At Morocco 2013

The controversial Goal-Line Technology, GLT, will make its debut appearance in Africa this week as the FIFA Club World Cup Morocco 2013 gets underway on Wednesday, 11 December, 2013.
In October, GoalControl GmbH was selected for the tournament as part of a tender process after FIFA invited all four FIFA-licenced GLT providers to submit a proposal.
The Germany-based company has since conducted site inspections and installed its GoalControl-4D system in the two venues, Marrakech and Agadir.
The systems at each stadium have successfully passed the final installation tests conducted by FIFA-accredited test institute SportsLabs, which are standard procedure as part of the official certification process defined in the GLT Testing Manual.
A referee training session was also held on Sunday, 8 December in Marrakech. Prior to the start of every game, the match officials will carry out their own tests, in line with the operational procedures first implemented at the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2012 and approved by the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
