KNVB follows English example and introduces special breaks during Ramadan

The KNVB will give referees the space to stop a duel, so that players participating in Ramadan can eat or drink. The association does place the responsibility for this with the arbitration, which will decide together with the clubs which players need this.

The Premier League has also introduced the drinking break system for Muslim players. The new guidelines for the coming weeks will therefore be that a duel can be stopped just after sunset, so that the players participating in Ramadan can have something to drink or eat. This will only be the case if there is at least one player on the field participating in the fasting period.

The Ramadan period runs until the last weekend of April, so this new guideline applies to three rounds of play. There are a total of thirteen matches that take place after sunset in that period. The breaks are therefore agreed to the minute with the players participating in Ramadan prior to the game. It is the first time that these breaks have been introduced.
