The additional assistant referees system experimented with in last season's Europa League will be used in the Champions League this year.
The decision was ratified at a meeting in Cardiff of the technical sub-committee of the International Football Association Board (IFAB), football's rule-makers, where it was also confirmed the issue of goal-line technology would be discussed in October.
The system of extra officials will be used in the Champions League, Europa League and Super Cup this season, as well as a handful of other competitions around the world after IFAB opened the experiment up to confederations outside of Europe.
