Ligue 1 suspends goal-line technology use due to errors

France's Ligue 1 suspends the use of goal-line technology after it fails to register two legitimate goals.

France's Ligue 1 has suspended the use of goal-line technology after it failed to detect legitimate goals during the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-finals.

The referees overseeing Paris Saint-Germain's win at Amiens and Angers vs. Montpellier did not receive alerts on their smartwatches when the ball crossed the line, as was supposed to happen.

Governing body the LFP has released a statement confirming that the use of the technology in the French top flight has been dropped due to the errors.

The organisation has reported the issues to GoalControl, the company which supplies Ligue 1's goal-line tech.

"Following two new technical failures in two games for the quarter-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue, the LFP on Thursday LFP informed the company GoalControl of the suspension as a precautionary measure and the immediate effect of the system of line technology until further notice," the statement read.

"This decision comes after a first formal notice sent on December 21 to the company GoalControl and following many malfunctions.

"A Board of Directors of the LFP will decide next week on the follow-up to be given to this file."

Hawk-Eye - the goal-line technology used in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Eredivisie and Serie A - is a different system, and is not provided by GoalControl.
