LFP adopts goal-line technology
The LFP has announced that goal-line technology will be adopted in Ligue 1 for the 2015-2016 season.
LFP president Frédéric Thiriez said: "This will be financed and supervised by the LFP. We decided to sign up to this technology as it is now a lot less expensive than it was a few months ago. Before I was reticent as the benefits are limited. It is something that will be used two or three times per season. But, given that Germany and England are already using this solution, we couldn't stay on the side-lines."
Thiriez continued: "France invented the electronic flag and we were the first, at my initiative, to equip referees with ear-pieces, something everybody does now."
