Goal-line technology to be used in Champions League and Europa League finals

By David Charlesworth

Goal-line technology will be used during this season's Champions League and Europa League finals.

UEFA's executive committee met on Friday at the governing body's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland where it was decided the technology should be used for the showpiece matches, which will be played in Milan on May 28 and in Basle on May 18 respectively.

A decision had already been announced in January that the technology would be in place for Euro 2016 this summer and in next season's Champions League from the play-off round onwards.

At that time UEFA also said it would look at the feasibility of introducing goal-line technology from the group stage of the Europa League starting in 2017-18.
