The Premier League is looking to introduce goal-line technology "as soon as is practically possible" after the International Football Association Board (IFAB) gave it the green light at a meeting in Zurich on Thursday.
FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke revealed that Hawk-Eye and GoalRef systems will be implemented at the 2012 Club World Cup in December after the IFAB approved of results from goal-line technology trials.
Chelsea will get to experience it first hand when it flies over to Tokyo for the tournament thanks to its Champions League triumph in May.
And goal-line technology could be on its way to the Premier League after the league released a statement praising the board's decision, indicating that it would look to implement the system as soon as possible.
"The Premier League has been a long-term advocate of goal line technology," it read.
"We will engage in discussions with both Hawk-Eye and GoalRef in the near future with a view to introducing goal-line technology as soon as is practically possible."
England's top flight has been involved in the development of goal-line technology since 2006, with HawkEye tests taking place Fulham's Craven Cottage and Reading's training ground during non-competitive scenarios.
