Bundesliga Says It Won't Implement Goal-Line Technology Until '15-16 Season
The German Football League (DFL), the commercial rights holder of the Bundesliga, revealed Friday that goal-line technology will not be implemented in the Bundesliga before July 1, 2015. The decision was made as part of the league's offical game-ball tender process for the '14-15 season. A further assessment will be made at a later time to determine whether to subsequently introduce the technology. The DFL is currently preparing the tender for the period following the expiration of its current game-ball contract on June 30 and has not ruled out the use of goal-line technology starting in the '15-16 season (DFL).
