The winter break in Premier League seems to be a more real opportunity
The introduction of a winter break in the Premier League seems increasingly realistically possible after a special statement from the Premier League today revealing talks in that direction. The subject has been discussed for several months and the decision has to be taken before the new TV rights contract is signed, covering the period 2019-2022. This means that the pause can be introduced at the earliest in the 2019/20 season.
The goal is to give players a chance to relax, tormented by the busy calendar in the Premier League. In addition, supporters of the idea believe that it will have a positive impact on the national team.
The plan is for the break to be in January and it will not affect the traditional holiday calendar between Christmas and New Year.
