The Premier League has vowed to bring in goal-line technology "as soon is practically possible" after the International FA Board's landmark decision to permit its use in football.
IFAB announced that two systems, Hawk-Eye and GoalRef, have been approved after passing a series of scientific tests.
And the Premier League wasted no time in hailing the decision, releasing a statement straight after the announcement saying that the technology will be introduced in to England's top division as quickly as possible.
"The Premier League has been a long term advocate of goal-line technology," the statement read.
"We welcome today's decision by IFAB and will engage in discussions with both Hawkeye and GoalRef in the near future with a view to introducing goal-line technology as soon as is practically possible."
Technology is already used to help officials in other sports such as cricket, rugby and tennis.
A series of controversial decisions last season increased the pressure on the game's law-makers to allow its introduction into football. And the debate reared its head again at the European championship when
Premier League players gave their backing to the introduction of the technology.

"The referee will still make the final decision but the view of the board is that anything that can help the referee has to be good.
"I think this is an historic day for football and I'm delighted to be part of that decision made today."
"The IFAB has been around since 1886 and has been the guardians of the laws of the game for all that time, and has developed the game slowly and carefully and conservatively.
"But this is a momentous day, the beginning of something new in football."
