Goal-line technology will be used at this season’s Champions League final in Milan and Europa League final in Basel, UEFA said on Friday.
Greek Theodore Theodoridis will take over as acting general secretary of European football’s governing body, it said, to replace Gianni Infantino who was elected as FIFA president last Friday.
Goal-line technology, used to decide whether the ball has completely crossed the line, was approved by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) in 2012.
It has been since been used in major European domestic leagues and at the 2014 World Cup.
Theodoridis was previously UEFA’s deputy general secretary.
UEFA could hold its presidential election to replace Platini before Euro 2016 if the Frenchman’s appeal is decided by CAS in time, officials said.
Platini was banned by FIFA’s ethics committee in December and this week took his case to CAS, sport’s highest tribunal. UEFA has said it will not hold a presidential election until the appeal process has been exhausted.
“Whenever there is a (CAS) decision, we can hold immediately a meeting of the executive committee meeting and go through an accelerated process for an election,” Theodoridis told reporters.
UEFA’s legal director Alasdair Bell said it was no longer necessary for candidates to register three months before the election.
“After we have the (CAS) decision, we can shorten the time for the election from three months to nil, so it’s possible,” he said.
The European Championship will be held in France from June 10 to July 10.
