Half-Time Interviews With Premier League Managers Could Take Place From Next Season

Half-time interviews with managers and coaching staff could be part of live television broadcasts of the Premier League from next season, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claim that proposals for half-time interviews have already been sent to top-flight clubs.

The 20 clubs are set vote on the plans at their annual general meeting in June.

Under the proposals, interviews would be limited to five a season per individual manager or coach.

Meanwhile, those who are losing at half-time would not be approached for interview.

According to the report, the plans have been given a 'warm reception' by media departments at Premier League clubs.

Such interviews, which would take place at the beginning or end of the half-time interval, are commonplace in sports in the United States.

The idea of half-time interviews in the Premier League was previously raised in 2020 when football was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Premier League clubs rejected proposals to allow half-time player interviews, cameras in dressing rooms and microphones in the technical area as part of Project Restart.

Under the current rules, Premier League managers must hold a press conference before and after each league fixture

In any game that is broadcast live, managers are also obliged to speak to the host broadcaster before and after kick-off.
