LFP Suspends Ligue 1 Use Of Goal-Line Technology

   Adrien Rabiot headed in PSG's second goal against Amiens but the referee's watch did not vibrate to indicate a goal

Following two more technical failings during games in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue, this Thursday January 11 the LFP informed the company GoalControl of the immediate suspension of the goal-line technology system until further orders.

LFP said in a statement that GoalControl had been warned last month after some errors in the earlier stage of the season.

But the system failed to signal a goal in Paris Saint-Germain's win at Amiens, as well as on another occasion during the quarter-final tie between Angers and Montpellier.

The French league (LFP) has chose to "immediately suspend" the use of goal-line technology after a series of glitches with the system, LFP director general Didier Quillot said on Thursday.

"The GLT didn't make the referee's watch vibrate and it was the video assistant who awarded the goal - and a second incident in Angers-Montpellier where the GLT wrongly caused the referee's watch to vibrate".


The technology incorrectly made the referee's watch vibrate when there was no goal, and he decided not to use the technology at all in the second half.

Didier Quillot, the league general director, said the service provided by GoalControl was not reliable at the moment, and hinted French football authorities could end the partnership.

That contract is now in jeopardy, even with Ligue 1 having used GoalControl since 2015.

There has been a lot of infusion of technology in football lately considering its extensive usage in other sports of the world.
