English Football League clubs have agreed in principle to use goal-line technology in the Championship next season.
The proposal was made at an EFL meeting of Championship clubs today and will be voted on at the league's Annual General Meeting in June.
The decision is likely to see the introduction of the same 'Hawk-eye technology that has been so successful in the Premier League since its approval in 2013.
Officially known as the Goal Decision System, it uses high-speed cameras to track the trajectory of the ball from different angles. The system is already used in the latter states of the EFL Cup and play-offs.
EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said:
I welcome the decision of our clubs to introduce goal-line technology into the EFL.
(Professional Game Match Officials Limited) officials do an incredible job and this decision is about providing our match officials with as much support as possible to ensure they are best placed to make the right calls in even the most difficult of situations.
The technology is widely adopted elsewhere in football, including in two of our competitions and I therefore welcome it as an important addition to the Sky Bet Championship from next season.
