FA Commission Discussing January Winter Break for Premier League: Daily Soccer Report

The FA Commission are discussing the possibility of instituting a Premier League winter break, according to The Daily Telegraph reporter Henry Winter.

The Premier League winter break is being proposed between for future January’s between the third round and fourth round of the FA Cup tournament.

Winter’s opinion regarding the proposed change is:

“Xmas/NY games wonderful tradition. Mustn’t be touched.”

I agree with Winter, but I would add that instituting a winter break would be a poor decision because many of the top Premier League clubs would probably use the time to play friendly matches to generate more revenue for the clubs, just as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are doing in Qatar next week during the winter breaks for Spain and France.

  1. Honestly, when someone is being paid thousands of euros every week, I don’t see how they should complain about the lack of a 2 or 3 week break.

  2. What they should do is move fixtures around to benefit the EPL clubs in Europe. Just as other leagues do to help tehir clubs advance in competitions.

  3. Gaffer….I think you just answered the question: They’ll do it just because they can schedule friendlies and make more money. :)
