German Goal-Line Technology (GLT) provider GoalRef, cialis will bid again for the right to provide their system in the Premier League, despite losing out to Hawk-Eye for the 2013-14 season.

Hawk-Eye was selected to provide GLT for the Premier League on Thursday and their system will be in place for the Community Shield at Wembley Arena in August.

However, GoalRef remain confident that their system is perfect for the Premier League and will bid when the League releases its future tender.

Speaking exclusively to iSportconnect, René Dünkler, Technology Marketing Director for Fraunhofer IIS, the company behind GoalRef said: “GoalRef from the Fraunhofer IIS is a good product for the next tender. The GoalRef Goal-Line Technology meets all accuracy and reliability requirements.

“One advantage is that it is compact and easy to install. It comprises only three key types of components: goal frames, balls and referee watches.

“The Fraunhofer IIS system provides accurate information regardless of what is happening on the pitch. It detects whether a goal has been scored even if the ball is obscured by one or more players, or the goalkeeper.”

Dünkler went on to add that: “The Premier League decision is the beginning of the future use of Goal-Line Technology.”
