WasitagoalWhen it comes to deciding whether or not the whole of the ball passed over the line, the human eye can be inadequate. Our GoalRef™ goal-line technology supports referees by informing them immediately when a goal is scored.
In answering the question of ‘Goal or no goal?’, FIFA will in future be turning to the GoalRef™ goal-line technology developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. After successfully completing a demanding certification process, the GoalRefTM system was officially licensed by FIFA in November 2012, which means it is approved for use at official football matches. Since GoalRefTM produces a reliable decision immediately, it does not interrupt play or alter the character of the game.
