Half times will not be extended from 15 minutes to 25 after football's lawmakers discussed and dismissed the controversial idea at a meeting on Thursday morning.

News that the International Football Association Board had received a request from CONMEBOL, the South American governing body, to consider extending the length of intervals was criticised by supporters. It would have enabled football to introduce Super Bowl-style half-time entertainment and fans bashed this as an attempt to 'Americanise' the game.

Now, the money-spinning idea has been thrown out, after being raised at IFAB's Annual Business Meeting, chaired by world governing body FIFA, where potential changes to the laws of the game were discussed.
