Zurich: FIFA has agreed to allow the introduction of goal-line technology (GLT), which will be used at the Club World Cup in Tokyo in December, the Confederation Cup in 2013 and also the World Cup in 2014, at a meeting of the sport’s executives here on Thursday.
According to new technology being introduced cameras would be positioned around stadium.
Earlier the International FA Board (IFAB) conducted the poll on giving the go-ahead to both the Hawk-Eye and the Goal Ref systems today.
Until the vote by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) here, players were prevented from wearing a headscarf, or hijab, at the sport’s highest level for safety reasons and on religious grounds.
The decision by world footballing authorities to overturn a ban on women soccer players wearing the Islamic headscarf was welcomed by several Muslim states.
“This decision, impatiently awaited, makes us very happy,” said Sheikha Naima al-Sabah, the president of the women’s sporting committee for Kuwait’s football federation
