It could also introduce Super Bowl-style performances to discuss football lawmakers increasing half-time


Football lawmakers discuss a half-time request so it can introduce Super Bowl-style performances in between games.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) is set to convene Thursday to consider some potential changes to the game.

And The Daily Mail reports lawmakers propose the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčentertainment at half-time.

It is thought that they are looking to increase the interval from 15 minutes to 25 minutes to accommodate Super Bowl-esque performances.

The idea came from the South American governing body, CONMEBOL, which believes it benefits their competitors such as the Copa Libertadores.

Allowing this change will allow English football to follow and thus introduce blockbuster half-time entertainment, opening the door to live music through showpiece games.

CONMEBOL’s request will not be returned from the panel, who have already expressed their concern for the well-being of players because prolonged half-time may increase the risk of injury to players.

“Players are entitled to a half-time interval, not exceeding 15 minutes,” reads the current rules of the half-time game.

In 2009, the board rejected a similar proposal to increase the half-time to 20 minutes.

CONMEBOL, however, argues that their proposal is a way to improve the spectacle of paying fans.

He believes the extra 10 minutes will benefit the teams involved in the match, adding that the coaches will have more time to prepare during the break.

Super Bowl half-time shows last for about 30 minutes, an increase in regular NFL games during the season.

The likes of The Weekend, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Justin Timberlake provided entertainment during the Super Bowl.
