Zurich: Frequent changes in the game are seen many times in cricket. But in football, which is described as a very simple game, changes do not happen quickly. The changes in football over a century are nominal. But international media reports suggest that FIFA is preparing to radically overhaul football. The plan is to test it in junior tournaments and implement it in international competitions.
Recently, Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid and the founder of the failed European Super League, suggested that football matches should be shortened as they were too long. It is reported that FIFA is preparing for the reform in the wake of such proposals. But as news of the proposals came out, football fans came out in protest. Fans responded that the decision would undermine the vitality of football. FIFA has not yet commented on the matter.
Important recommendations in draft FIFA guidelines:
-Make the match into two halves of 30 minutes. Also allow extra time and injury time similar to the current one. The match is currently being played in two halves of 45 minutes.
-Allow unrestricted substitutions. This will allow more people on the bench to enter the cell. In the Kovid case, three substitutions were raised to five.
-No throw balls. The idea is to allow a kick-in instead. The conclusion is that this will make it easier and the competition faster.
-Give five minute suspension to yellow card holders as punishment.
