The half-time break in football typically lasts for around 15 minutes. This break allows the players to rest, rehydrate, receive any necessary medical attention, and receive tactical instructions from their coaches. During this time, the teams usually head to their respective dressing rooms to regroup and strategize for the second half of the game.
It is important to note that the duration of the half-time break can vary depending on the competition or league. Some leagues may opt for a shorter break of around 10 minutes, while others may have longer breaks of up to 20 minutes. The decision on the duration of the break is usually determined by the governing bodies of the respective competitions.
