Goal-line Technology Will be Used in Women’s World Cup 2014 – Mingyang Li

This will be the showcase for Goal- line technology being used in the 2015 Women’s World Cup. The implementation of this technology will sharply reduce the probabilities for referees of making mistakes on debating if the goal should be counted. The provider is a company called Hawk-eyed, whose responsibility is to set up 14 high-speed cameras on the sphere of the court, of which seven cameras will be used at the end of the goal-line. Match officers will get a goal message on their wearable devices when the ball crosses the goal line.

However, I believe this technology has some drawbacks as well. What if the connection between the high-speed cameras and the wearable devices drops and fails to perform the task, then it will still give referees a big question mark on whether the goal should be counted.
