The whole world is preparing for the 2022 World Cup which is one of it's kind. For the first time ever, the Word Cup will be played in November and December and in the Middle East Qatar.
FIFA, the organising body in charge of the world cup have been rumoured to plan and have several changes in the matches to be played in the World Cup. One of the changes that FIFA plan to implement is changing the match period from 90 minutes to 100 minutes.
The reasoning behind this this is that FIFA feel that the biggest matches average 54 minutes of playing time. In turn, FIFA want to have the additional 10 minutes in an attempt to cover up for the time lost in between matches.
This has been met with a lot of criticism from the fans who are now questioning what FIFA want to turn football into. Knowing many footballers as well, it is highly unlikely that they would agree to play for 100 minutes in one match.
The World Cup has already sold 800,000 tickets in the first phase of ticket sales. More tickets are expected to be sold in the second phase.
