Winter Break 'Agreed in Principle' For 2020

1:00 pm Wednesday, 18 April 2018
Sky Sports News are reporting that the FA, Premier League and EFL are close to an agreement over the introduction of a winter break, with the first break set to take place between January and February 2020.
The Football Association council were briefed on Wednesday afternoon and given updates on the progress of talks which were prompted by FA chief executive Martin Glenn almost two years earlier, and if agreed, one round of Premier League matches would be played over two weeks, giving clubs a break from league action.

In return, the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup will be played in midweek, with extra-time and penalties replacing replays.

Teams on a break from league action would be allowed to travel abroad for training camps. However, money-making tours in the US or Far East would not be received so well.
