Thank you Mapletree for the explanation. I thought it could just wait until half time.

Still could I guess, as it would be a reasonable compromise. I canít imagine them stopping a 10,000 metre race half way through.

A 10.000 metre runner should not be stopping to refuel drink in a six mile race.

A pro football player will run 3-4 miles in a half.

Mandatory water breaks are not every game, or every level of football. They are based upon extreme temperatures, not religious choices.

Fasting players could eat/drink before, or at half time, or go to the side of the pitch instead of stopping the game for a choice they made.

The physiological aspect here? If they cant run for forty five minutes without these breaks , they are unfit to play, they have chosen to make themselves unfit to play. A fit human body stores enough carbs, glycogen to pay football for forty five minutes easily.

So that leaves dehydration in forty five minutes of football un the UK cool climate necessitating a break of several minutes because they are dehydrated? Its a nonsense.

I really wish you would read, think and then post.

For Sunnis it is Sunnah to break fast (a glass of water and a fruit) at Maghrib, following which they must pray. Breaking fast takes just about the same length of time as Wilf rubbing his shins and complaining to the referee.

If this were not announced would anybody really notice or indeed care?

If the players want to sit down for a four-course meal during a game, say some prayers and have a kip, I think most will protest however I do not see the need to draw too much attention to this beyond acknowledging it's existence for those who may be left feeling unnerved by a few players having a quick drink or what-have-you without a formal announcement.

VAR still seems surreal to me in just standing around completely uninformed as to what is happening sometimes but I'm slowly getting over it. I've probably spent more time watching Wayne Hennessey trying to travel a distance of 6m+ before in a game.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Genuine enquiry. What happens when prayer times come during game time in afternoon and evening kick-offs?

Can't recall which World cup it was, but it was somewhere really hot. (Mexico 86 ? and at altitude) and it was agreed before games that drinks could be taken during prolonged stoppages (for injured players, for example). Not really a new one

Why should a sporting event pander to any religious rigmarole. If a player thinks that playing in a particular game will compromise his beliefs, then he should ask to be dropped.

Let's kick Politics AND religion out of Sport.

Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

The Muslim players could go to the side of the pitch, but luckily the governing body of their industry have decided to make a miniscule concession to allow them to practice their faith without having to be at a competitive disadvantage - it's the sort of decision any reasonable employer would make, and any reasonable person would not have an issue with.

Well, itís just another piece of nonsense that is infecting football. Taking a Knee, having half-a-dozen kids in toe when the teams come out, synchronised dancing before the kick-off. A minuteís applause/silence because the groundsmanís dog has died, etc.

Perhaps there should be a break for pancake-tossing if there is a match on Shrove Tuesday.
