Goalline technology in Championship Play-offs

on Mon 01 May 2017, 8:47 pm
The Guardian


Goalline technology given early Championship debut in play-offs

• System to become permanent Championship fixture in 2017-18 season 
• Premier League has been using the technology since 2013


The Championship play-off semi-finals in May will feature goalline technology before it becomes a fixture next season.

Originally scheduled for approval at June’s English Football League annual general meeting, the use of the technology was confirmed at an extraordinary general meeting last week in order to give clubs more time to install the necessary infrastructure.

The earlier-than-expected start has enabled the League to confirm that the four play-off semi-final matches, played between 13 and 17 May, will also have the system in place.

The technology has been used in the Premier League since 2013, as well as in some League Cup ties and the EFL play-off finals at Wembley.

Shaun Harvey, the EFL chief executive, said: “The introduction of goalline technology is a significant step forward for Championship clubs and reflects the importance of the outcome of every single game in the division. Goalline technology has proved to be popular and effective in the Premier League as well as other mainstream sports. I am sure it will also become a welcome and useful addition to our broadcast coverage.”



Will this favour any particular team, and are you in favour of it?

Bout time. If you have this and it's working then roll it out.

In my opinion if the lower leagues One & Two can't afford to do this then the FA should pay for it as they have the money and it ensures the same is available throughout all the professional leagues.
