The study examines the different kinds of technology used in football and the importance of introducing Goal Line Technology to assist football officials. Therefore, the literature review highlights how other sports have benefit from technologies and how referees would benefit from them. The research methodology is a chapter that explains how the research was undertaken from conducting focus groups with the Gibraltar Football Association to preparing questionnaires which were completed by the football players from the GFA; and organising semi-structured interviews with various football professionals from the Professional Football Association (PFA), Gibraltar Football League (GFL) and the Football Association Premier League (FAPL) in order to gain information on the actual subject form the outside world. The study found that officials were in favour of using TMO like in Rugby Union but only to assist in goal-line decisions. Problems for this reason are mentioned in the literature review and discussion chapters. Many of the interviewees were also in favour of introducing the goal line technology but only to be used if uncertain of a goal. The study concludes with an evaluation of the actual question and states how rules may have to be changed in order for technology to be introduced. It also contains a section with recommendations stating the reason why technology should be increased to assist officials and football as a game.
