Updated: February 19, 2013

FIFA announced Tuesday that it plans
to implement goal-line technology for the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014
World Cup in Brazil.

The governing body used goal-technology during the 2012 Club World Cup in
Japan and experienced no issues, signaling that the organization plans to go
ahead with further implementation.

“With different technologies on the market, FIFA has launched a tender today,
setting out the technical requirements for the two forthcoming competitions in
Brazil,” FIFA said in a statement.
