The Football Association’s General Secretary Alex Horne expects goal-line technology to be used in the English game next season.
Horne reiterated that The FA wishes to install a system at Wembley Stadium in time for The Community Shield in August.
English football’s governing body has long backed calls to use the technology and sanctioned testing at last June’s England v Belgium match at the national stadium.
Last week, FIFA confirmed German company GoalControl had been selected to provide goal-line technology at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Horne said: "I always thought it was an ideal piece of technology to allow into the game.
“There are occasions when goal-line technology is needed and we've seen them here at Wembley, we've seen them in World Cups, we've seen them 11 or 12 times in the Premier League this season alone.
"So technology that says 'yes, the ball has crossed the line' and lets the referee know makes an awful lot of sense to me.
"Particularly where it's a knock-out situation, incorrect decisions have less opportunity to even themselves out over a season."
Goal-line technology will be used in next season's FA Cup, from the Third Round onwards in any stadium fitted with the system.
And Horne sees it as a way for the world's oldest knockout competition to keep pace with an ever-changing football landscape.
He said: "We're always looking for ways to improve and engage. The FA Cup is one of those fantastic competitions which keeps growing year on year, from strength to strength.
"It gives so much back, particularly to the smaller clubs. We generate £65m a year from the competition and over a 10-year period £650m gets reinvested back into football.
“That's a real fillip for some of the smaller clubs. For example, Luton made £460,000 out of their Cup run, which is a fantastic sum of money for a non-League side."
The FA and Premier League are running a joint-tender process for the supply, installation and maintenance of 21 systems - all 20 Premier League stadiums and Wembley - in an attempt to secure a better deal.
British-based firm Hawk-Eye – known for providing tennis and cricket with ball-tracking technology – is competing with the three other FIFA-licensed firms - Cairos, GoalControl and GoalRef - to win the contract.
