GoalControl is the new goal-line technology system, licensed and chosen by FIFA for the Confederations Cup and World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

FIFA chose the German-based, 4-D ball-tracking system over GoalRef, Cairos and HawkEye system. According to provided description: GoalControl is camera based and easy to install in professional stadiums. No special goal posts. No modified footballs. White nets no problem. Outstanding support for the match officials.

No matter how advanced, the referees will still make the final decisions in the football matches. The technology will, however, help them out to make much more accurate decisions.
