MLS says no to goal-line technology

Goal-line technology will not be introduced in Major League Soccer after officials decided it was too expensive and said they needed to prioritise how money was spent.

The Premier League approved the use of HawkEye technology earlier this month, and the MLS had appeared set to follow suit.

League commissioner Don Garber - who had previously said the MLS was "open to using goal-line technology as soon as it is made available" - said it had now been decided that the price was too high.

Garber told the Associated Press that the cost of installing the GoalControl system, being used in the 2014 World Cup - $260,000 per stadium and $3,900 per game - had inspired a rethink.

"It had us take a step back and pause and try to figure out is the value of having goal-line technology worth investing millions and millions and millions of dollars for the handful of moments where it's relevant?'' he explained.

"And our view has been that we're going to wait and see how it works out. We certainly don't need to be the first league that has it.''

He said the MLS would be open to using other technological innovations but could only consider those approved by FIFA, world football's governing body.

"I'm a believer in technology and, if I were a king, we would have more technology in Major League Soccer and in our game,'' he added.

"But I'm not a king, I'm a subject - and unfortunately the league can't operate outside the confines of FIFA. So our ability to do unique and interesting things, like the other leagues in our country can do, is somewhat limited.''
