New rules govern England soccer players' video game habits

New, 5 comments

A new rule set to be enacted by the English Football Association puts limits on the time England soccer players can spend playing video games, reports the BBC.

The full code of conduct will not be made public. However, when it goes into effect in November, violators can face disciplinary action including suspension, the Football Association's chairman, David Bernstein, told the BBC. The code also governs other conduct, including a prohibition from tweeting about upcoming matches without team management approval.

Earlier this week, Tencent reported about another incident linking gaming with poor job performance, in which Chinese workers are facing punishment for playing video games during work hours.
