In particular, the idea is being discussed at the level of the International Football Federation (FIFA) and the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
It is assumed that the net playing time can be reduced immediately by half an hour - up to 60 minutes.
Now, we recall, two halves of 45 minutes each are played. Between them - a break of 15 minutes.
MIA Rossiya Segodnya writes about the possibility of such a reduction , citing information from former FIFA referee Mark Clattenburg, published in the Daily Mail.
According to a well-known referee in the past, when he officiated matches, football players often complained that he added too many minutes to the regular time of the match. Or too few.
Currently, FIFA and IFAB are studying this issue together with another famous referee - Italian Pierluigi Collina.
By the way, he currently works as the head of the refereeing committee of UEFA and FIFA.
Other potential innovations include stopping the stopwatch when the ball is out of play, if a player is injured, when the referee issues a warning, etc.
