Goal-line Technology

Hawkeye to be used in the Play-Off Semi-Finals

Shrewsbury Town are preparing for the introduction of Goal-line Technology at the Montgomery Waters Meadow ahead of Sunday's Play-Off Semi-Final

The EFL committed to introduce the new technology at the Semi-Final stage following its successful use in previous Play-Off Finals staged at Wembley Stadium and therefore Hawkeye will be in operation for the first time at the Meadow on Sunday.  

Goal-line Technology will assist referees and their assistants in making crucial decisions where there is doubt as to whether or not the ball has crossed the line at all Play-Off matches across all three divisions.

EFL Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: “We are extremely aware of the difficult decisions facing match officials on any given match day, and we welcome the impact GLT is having to help PGMOL officials to make the right calls, even in the tightest of situations.

“Goal-line Technology has been a welcome and significant addition to the Championship throughout the 2017/18 season, playing an important role in the outcome of the campaign.

“It is therefore appropriate that the technology is incorporated into all Play-Off matches across all three divisions of the EFL given the magnitude of the outcome of every single game at this time of the season.”
