Football's governing body FIFA has confirmed that goal-line technology will be used at the next World Cup in Brazil.

FIFA has already licensed two systems - Hawkeye and GoalRef - but has invited more providers to submit tenders.

The technology was first used at last year's World Club Cup in Japan, and will be rolled out at the Confederations Cup Brazil in 2013 as well as the World Cup.

In a statement, FIFA said the technology would be installed in all stadia in order to "support the match officials".
