Scrapping the game's standard 45-minute half is the most startling proposal brought by the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
Penalty goals, dribbling from free kicks and corners, and points deductions for mobbing the referee are among a crop of radical proposals for discussion by football's law-making body, the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
Adopting two halves of 30 minutes with the clock stopped when the ball goes out of play is one of dozens of ideas put forward by IFAB in a bid to make football more attractive.
"The strategy proposes measures to reduce time-wasting and "speed up" the game".
The intention is to increase the amount of playing time, according to The Times who have seen the document.
Players will be able to play free kicks or corners to themselves.
Perhaps one of the more intriguing ideas suggested is the plan to only allow the referee to blow the half time or full time whistle when the ball is out of play, in a similar style to rugby.
David Ellery, the technical director for IFAB, told the media: "My starting point was to look at the laws and say 'What are they for?' And if there is no particular reason then would changing them make the game better".
Minor amendments include a goal kick not having to leave the penalty area before a defender touches it and a goal kick being awarded if a player misses a penalty kick, instead of any follow up being allowed.
On Saturday, there were just 47 minutes of actual playing time in Russia's 2-0 win over New Zealand to open the Confederations Cup, according to Federation Internationale de Football Association.
Another proposal which was tested at the U20 World Cup in Korea is a change to the order of penalty kicks in shootouts, known as ABBA. UEFA has also been testing a new format for penalty kicks to eliminate the perceived advantage for the first team shooting.
Ifab said in the document.
The Play Fair! document will be discussed at various meetings before decisions are taken on whether to develop ideas further or discard them.
