2010 FIFA World Cup final referee Howard Webb will speak as part of a panel looking at the use of technology in football at the Soccerex European Forum which runs from the 30th - 31st March 2011 in Manchester.
The panel, titled 'Crossing the Line: Football’s Technology Debate' will include a mix of stakeholders from technology companies and governing bodies as well as Mr Webb. The panel will examine what technology could do for football and whether it would benefit or damage the beautiful game.
The panel will be especially topical as the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the body which controls any changes in the law of the game, will be holding their annual general meeting just weeks before the Soccerex European Forum, where they have agreed to re-examine the use of goal-line technology in the sport.
The Soccerex European Forum is a two-day event which is returning to Manchester for a second year at the Manchester Central and will see the elite of Europe’s football industry come together to debate, network and do business.
