LONDON (AP) - The English Premier League is the first major domestic competition to approve a goal-line technology system to help referees with close calls.

Hawk-Eye, the camera-based ball-tracking system, will be used next season. Tennis and cricket use Hawk-Eye, which was chosen ahead of three FIFA-sanctioned products.

Hawk-Eye sends a signal within a second of the ball crossing the line to the referee, who has the power to make the final call on a disputed goal.

The English have championed goal-line technology for years. FIFA ended its long-standing opposition to high-tech help in 2010.
