Goal-line technology

In association football, goal-line technology (sometimes referred to as a Goal Decision System) is a method used to determine when the ball has completely crossed the goal line in between the goal-posts and underneath the crossbar with the assistance of electronic devices and at the same time assisting the referee in awarding a goal or not. The objective of goal-line technology (GLT) is not to replace the role of the officials, but rather to support them in their decision-making. The GLT must provide a clear indication as to whether the ball has fully crossed the line, and this information will serve to assist the referee in making his final decision.

Major League Soccer, the professional soccer league of the United States was set to become the very first league to utilize goal line technology, and become pioneers of the beautiful game. However, as a result of the relative lack of funding in the league compared to the English Premier League and Spain's La Liga, Major League Soccer will be unable to implement said technology. This is surely a missed opportunity for the league and league commissioner Don Garber who wants "MLS to be one of the world's elite leagues by 2022." according to the Associated Press.
