Bundesliga clubs reject goal-line technology

AP - Sports

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Bundesliga clubs have rejected a proposal to introduce goal-line technology.

A meeting between the 36 clubs in the first and second divisions failed to provide a two-thirds majority needed to implement the technology.

German Football League president Reinhard Rauball says half of the 18 top-tier clubs voted for the technology. German referees have backed the technology.

Rauball says the vote means the ''topic has been shelved'' for the time being.

The league tested four available systems. In the past, most German clubs said the technology wasn't precise enough.

A German company, Goal Control, will provide such technology at the World Cup in Brazil.
