Würselen, 11.30.2015. A turbulent and successful year is drawing to an end. The focus of GoalControl’s work this year was the introduction of the goal-line technology “GoalControl-4D” in France’s Ligue 1.
“For us, winning the contract with the French Soccer League was both an outstanding and strategically important success. Our overall package impressed and we are very grateful and proud that the Ligue de Football Professionnel has placed its trust in us for this extremely important project,” said Managing Director Dirk Broichhausen in May. In this context, around 15 new jobs were created – predominantly for the match operations in France.
GoalControl can look back at further groundbreaking results this year.. “The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait was the first stadium in the Middle East to be fitted with goal-line technology by GoalControl. At the Dell World Conference in Austin, Texas, we were awarded the prize of most innovative startup company by Michael Dell himself. We still have a lot to do and we look forward to starting 2016 with clear goals, drive and technological vision," said Broichhausen.
As the final projects of 2015 are completed, allowing us to spend a peaceful holiday season with family, the violence in many countries around the world casts a shadow over the Advent and Christmas period.
The number of people fleeing fighting, oppression and persecution continues to rise and the cold winter will further exacerbate the situation for refugees. GoalControl GmbH has taken this opportunity to support the regional refugee organization Förderkreis Asyl Würselen e.V. by making a Christmas donation. "Charity is a top priority at Christmas every year. While we are able to spend this joyful period with our loved ones, there are many people currently facing unimaginable circumstances. We want to help these people a little by making a donation to “Förderkreis Asyl Würselen e.V.”,” explains Dirk Broichhausen. The association “Förderkreis Asyl Würselen e.V." was founded on June 19, 2015 to provide financial and organizational support for the volunteers working for and with refugees in Würselen. The nonprofit association’s goal is to fully integrate refugees into our society.
We would like to thank our clients, partners and employees for their collaboration this year. GoalControl GmbH wishes you a happy and peaceful holiday period and a happy, prosperous and healthy new year.
