FIFA proposes to introduce a new rule for the World Cup in Qatar 2022 and increase the playing time from 90 to 100 minutes » FirstSportz

FIFA President

Gianni Infantino, FIFA President, on Wednesday proposed changing the rule from 90 minutes per game to 100 minutes per game. FIFA looks forward to putting the rule into effect from the Qatar 2022 World Cup, which begins in November.

According to reports from Corriere Dello Sport, FIFA authorities are considering making the game more competitive and tougher once the game length is increased to 100 minutes. Although this can have negative implications for many countries, some countries will want more minutes of chances to try their luck at qualifying further.

The rule change stems from the fact that the ball doesn’t stay in play for long, not as much as it should have been. According to reports from the CIES Football Observatory, the ball stays on the field about 64.5% of games in the Champions League.

The new rule was proposed by Gianni Infantino, whose presidential power expires at the end of 2023. Although the FIFA President proposed the new rule change, it needs to be approved by the International Football Association Board (IFEB) before it is officially implemented in football matches.

FIFA has many other plans for the upcoming World Cups, including a proposal to shorten the period between two consecutive World Cups to two years (instead of four). From the 2026 World Cup, other teams can also be presented.
