Lawmakers discuss increasing the halftime interval
Football is an ever-changing landscape; sometimes it’s better, sometimes it’s worse.
The Premier League is a typical example. However, in a sport that, despite its ability to innovate, progress, and keep pace with the times, it can still maintain its uniqueness in many ways, legislators may set out to introduce new impetus to the sport; longer Half time interval.
On the surface, some people may not think this is the worst thing in the world. How many times have we rushed out of our seats when the midfield whistle sounded – or a minute ago – and stood in a queue in the bathroom to get food and drinks, or stretch our legs after a roaring motion-pack the first half . Of course, if there is more time to do one or all of these things, it will be welcome.However, as people pay more and more attention to the financial aspects of the sport, especially in Super League.
According to the post, Football lawmakers will discuss extending the intermission time from 15 minutes to 25 minutes. Why? To accommodate the possibility of halftime entertainment.

The IFAB (International Football Association Board of Directors) is scheduled to hold a meeting on Thursday to arrange an intermission in the record. The idea is to structure the season similar to the halftime entertainment during the penultimate NFL game of the U.S. Super Bowl.
However, the reality is still—although fans want to entertain through whatever shows are offered—it may be like Super League Earn additional income through advertising rights related to the extended intermission.
For example, the NFL’s intermission time is 12 minutes, but it is extended to half an hour during the Super Bowl. The company is eager to get 30 seconds of advertising space during the business break at a cost of 5.5 million US dollars.
Similar settings for the FA Cup or League Cup finals provide another potential source of income for England’s football leaders.
Premier League fans react to possible halftime changes
It is difficult to say that this potential change will be enthusiastically supported by most of the game supporters. Most people-I also speak from personal experience-just want to pursue football, friendship, highs, lows, and connections with their closest clubs.
But if fans accept the 30-minute *insert any sub-par music performance you can think of* and they hardly sign up, how will they feel? look by youself.
Literally, no one wants it. We want to be able to drink a pint in our seats and stand up without being complained. 15 minutes feels too long.

Yes, but a huge TV audience may want to watch it. This is the problem. With the TV dollar, you will dance to the tune of the TV dollar.

“Super Bowl style” is an excessive commitment. How much “Super Bowl” entertainment will take place below the pyramid? Just for more advertising, pure and simple. The snake oil salesman tried to pretend it was for the benefit of the fans.

This is not for the fans. It is all for money. The club will get income from the bands and programs broadcast on HT. The band will get TV exposure in the PL competition. The broadcaster has more time to put more advertisements, and fans will feel that Boring, especially if they lose more and will only go home.

I’m from Ohio, and I can’t even understand how this happened. Part of the reason I like this sport is that it is hardly Americanized.It is the most absurd thing to see these “legislators” want to do such a thing, because it will make them make more money

They tried this at the beginning of Sky and PL for video games. I remember that Salman was booed at Highbury. The experiment did not last long.

Leeds United have 8.15 ko at Crystal Palace next week. So, the game ended at approximately 10.15 on a Tuesday night in south London. Hate to think of time to return to Leeds.
