January 18, “The Times” and “The Telegraph” reported that the FIFA Council
The club is planning a series of major reforms, including “basketball-like” watch stoppages, concussion substitutes, and clarification of offside rules.
FIFA and representatives of the four countries will discuss three options to facilitate improved net game time.
Net game time in the Premier League has hit a record low this season.
The meeting will discuss a variety of options, such as following the existing rules, the referee will strictly punish the penalty, and the goalkeeper will be punished if he holds the ball for more than six seconds.
Following the example of the World Cup in Qatar, the referee strictly calculates the time wasted on the field and finally makes stoppage time.
In addition, the meeting will also discuss the “basketball-style” stop clock timing. Manchester United director Ferguson and former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein are both supporters of the plan.
The latest analysis by Sky Sports found that the net game time of the Premier League has decreased this season. The net game time of a game is less than 56%.
This is a problem throughout Europe, with Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga having lower net minutes than the Premier League.
Taking into account substitutions, injured players leaving the field, delays, time loss for referees, water replenishment, VAR intervention, and even goal celebrations, the referee will have discretion to increase the time.
“The Times” also added that the game may introduce independent timekeepers to replace referees.
On Wednesday local time, the meeting will also discuss the rules of substitution adjustments for players with concussions, and may try a set of rules similar to rugby.
They will also discuss guidelines for clearing offside calls.
In the last round of the Premier League, the goal scored by Manchester United player B Fee caused controversy. Whether Rashford affected the judgment of Manchester City players sparked discussion.
