Can football players play 90 minutes without half time

Recommended Posts

The length of a professional soccer match is 90 minutes, plus additional time added to each half as calculated by the referee to make up for game stoppages. Why that length? I'm not sure. I think that there was a rule that was formed by the universities of England. There was a article I read about the auction of Sheffield rulebook for football for 1.2 million pounds. 

But yeah 90mins of each round they can do it 🙂

Just to verify, you are talking about soccer and not American football right? Being American, I always get confused when people say football here, because I know there are so many people that mean soccer, and not what Americans envision when the word "football" is spoken.

Such will deviate it from being soccer, soccer needs to have period of break, it's been running for ages, so, changing it with this kind of rule you suggested will kill the beautiful game.

I think FIFA executive bodies suggested to increase football matches to 100 minutes, but such wouldn't see it being a normal football match. It should remain as it is, no need of adjusting it.

FIFA tried to convince football lovers about the chances of extending the game to 120 minutes, but fans turned it down, so it wouldn't be boring.
