Added Time

Added Time

Added time is an unspecified amount of minutes added to the end of each half of a football match.

 A round number, usually between one and six minutes, is announced shortly before the end of each half.

The game will continue for a minimum of that many minutes, until the referee blows his or her whistle to signal the end of the match.

This time is added to prevent a team from protecting a lead by running the clock down during these stoppages of play and takes substitutions and injuries in to account.

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
