FIFA approves testing of video technology

The International Football Association Board has approved testing of video technology to aid match officials, it was announced today.

Experiments will be carried out over a two-year period starting no later than the 2017/18 season.

The decision to introduce video technology follows the widespread introduction of goal-line technology, which was used by FIFA at the 2014 World Cup and will be used by UEFA at this season’s Champions League and Europa League finals, as well at Euro 2016.
