NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Soccer has decided against installing goal-line technology for now because it doesn't want to spend the money.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber said last April his league was "open to using goal-line technology as soon as it is made available.''

He told the Associated Press Sports Editors on Thursday that the league decided to hold off, saying "cost is the overriding factor.''

International soccer authorities approved goal-line technology last July. FIFA announced in February that the GoalControl-4D system will be used at the 2014 World Cup. England's Premier League said April 11 it will install the Hawk-Eye system next season, becoming the first domestic competition to use technology.
