The English Premier League had hoped to have high-tech aids for referees in matches by August 2012 but that will be delayed until 2013. Tests on nine systems are about to start in stadiums across Europe.

International Football Association Board member Alex Horne, who is also the English Football Association general secretary, says it won’t be able to approve any systems until July.

Horne says “that’ll be too late for season ’12-13. I think it’ll be ’13-14.”

Horne says there is “a big capital decision-making process for any league or competition.”

FIFA hopes to use goal-technology at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
