London: England's Premier League has agreed to introduce a winter break in a historic move to give players a rest during an increasingly crowded season, the Football Association (FA) announced Friday.

The break -- which falls short of those taken in mainland European leagues -- will give the 10 Premier League teams a weekend off football in February beginning in the 2019/20 campaign.

"This is a significant moment for English football and one that we believe will greatly benefit both club and country," said FA chief executive Martin Glenn.
