Goal-line technology will be introduced in the French top flight from next season, the league’s president Frederic Thiriez announced on Thursday.
“It is a unanimous decision by our board,” declared LFP chief Thiriez after the decision to go the way of the English Premier League, which introduced goal-line technology at the start of last season.
“Now we need to establish the exact specifications and consult the two main operators: the British system Hawk-Eye and the German Goalcontrol.
“It will be entirely financed and supervised by the league,” said Thiriez, who insisted that the costs of implementing the technology had come down.
The technology was also used at last year’s World Cup in Brazil and will be applied in Germany and Italy next season as well at the women’s World Cup in Canada in June.
