FIFA will testing new goal-line technology this autumn.

FIFA have announced that they are to test nine goal-line technology systems this autumn for match-day use next season.

The systems will be tried out between September and December in both daylight and floodlit conditions.

Football's world governing body has required systems to alert the referee within one second whether a goal has been scored.

Such a requirement has meant that the Sony-owned company Hawk-Eye, whose multi-camera system is used in tennis and cricket, are not participating in the trial.

FIFA's rule-making body, the International Football Association Board, will analyse the results in March and invite the most successful systems to a second round of tests.

President Sepp Blatter, who was opposed to such technology, has expressed a more open mind to the proposed reforms since the 2010 World Cup, which saw England denied a clear goal in their second-round defeat against Germany.
