FIFA’s rules-making bofy, the IFAB, will study the results from 10 different goal-line technology systems being tested before its meeting next month.
FIFA says the 10 systems will be tested privately next week by researchers from a Zurich-based technology institute.
IFAB will meet on March 5 to assess the results before taking a “decision of principle and potential next step” to give referees technological assistance.
IFAB also will consider letting UEFA use the five-referee match official system at the 2012 European Championship.
Other proposed rules changes relate to stray objects on the pitch, players wearing snoods and tights, plus a suggestion that referees use vanishing spray to denote where defensive walls should stand at free-kicks.
