Bundesliga rejects goal-line technology

Goal-line technology will not be introduced in Germany after Bundesliga clubs failed to provide a two-thirds majority vote.

The Premier League has already announced a deal with Hawk-Eye
Hawk Eye was one of the technologies considered.

The 36 clubs which make up the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 met to discuss implementing the technology, but German Football League president Reinhard Rauball said half of the 18 top-tier clubs voted in favour of the move.

Rauball also claimed German referees backed the technology but “the topic has been shelved” at the current time. It had previously been mooted to come in as early as the 2014-15 season.

The topic was raised after Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling scored a controversial "ghost goal" during his side's 2-1 win against Hoffenheim in October 2013.

Four systems were tested with a view to one being introduced, after the Premier League and FIFA tournaments successfully made the transition.

Goal Control, a German goal-line technology company, will provide the service at the 2014 World Cup.
