How Many Quarters Are in a Soccer Game?

A soccer game has two halves, not quarters. Each half in a regulation soccer game lasts 45 minutes. Some soccer organizations vary the time per half depending on the age and skill of the players.

Referees have the option of adding more time at the end of a half to make up for time used during player substitutions and other time-consuming activities between plays.

In between the two halves in a soccer game, there is an intermission. The length of the intermission is dictated by league rules. Some leagues have a time limit, such as 15 minutes, for the amount of time between halves.
