It is state-of-the-art technology and its cost would be extremely high, however in the Liga MX would be willing to implement “Hawk Eye” in case the Mexican Soccer Federation (FMF) Consider it a smart investment.
Although it is not the first game of Liga MX where this technology would have been useful, what happened during the National Classic in between Chivas y America has put on the table the debate on the possible implementation of the “Hawk Eye”, this due to the controversy that was generated in a play where Guillermo Ochoa he saved the ball just inside the limits of the goal line.
Regarding this topic Mikel Arriolapresident of the Liga MXconsidered it possible that Mexican soccer has this technology.
“The possibility of funding technology from the Liga, to improve the product and the decisions, it can always be done. Us last year was the first year where the Liga it was self-sufficient, we generated a remnant of resources, we no longer depend financially on the clubs, we no longer cost the clubs. This year we are going to close very well and all that remainder is from clubs, but to make smart investments, if consensus is generated with the federation that this technology is a smart investment, of course we would implement it”, he commented Arriola.
According to the opinion of some former professional referees such as Marco Antonio Rodriguez, the cost of the “Hawk’s Eye” would be around 100 million pesos per seasonsomething that on paper would be unaffordable for Mexican and Latin American soccer in general.
