Broadcasters can ask managers for half-time TV interviews at Qatar World Cup

Fifa keen to give greater access to television viewersInterviews not compulsory and must be agreed in advanceManagers at the World Cup will have the option of doing half-time interviews, with Fifa deciding to follow the Premier League in exploring the possibility of providing greater access to television viewers. It is thought unlikely that many teams will take up such offers but managers such as Gareth Southgate could provide half-time insight in Qatar.The ‘flash’ interviews are not compulsory and have to be mutually agreed by the media rights licensee, such as the BBC or ITV, and the respective teams. Interviews will take place at the beginning or end of the half-time break if the host broadcaster submits a request in advance and the manager or assistant manager agrees to do so.
