BREAKING NEWS: Winter break confirmed for Premier League from 2019-20
The Football Association (FA) has announced the Premier League will get a two-week mid-season break in February, starting in the 2019-20 season.
A period of rest during the hectic winter months in English football has been a regular topic of debate, with some putting England's international failings down to the lack of respite afforded to players during the domestic campaign.
But, from the 2019-20 campaign, the top tier will get a two-week break in February to help ease concerns of overexertion.
The proposed structure will ensure the Premier League continues to run through a two-week period, with each weekend during the break featuring five top-flight games instead of the usual 10.
