Pre-match checks

To ensure optimal integration with other stadium operations, goal-line technology should be included in all pre-match checks and countdowns. This includes technical tests, briefings for the teams when needed and a procedure for getting the watches to the match officials, as well as establishing a clear line of communication between referees, competition organisers and goal-line technology operators.

Debrief and troubleshooting

After each match, feedback should be gathered from all involved parties, especially the match officials, competition organisers, the goal-line technology provider and the broadcasters (if involved). Standard reporting forms should be available to document any irregularities that may have occurred during a match.
