Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore has backed Sam Allardyces call for a winter break and says talks are ongoing about introducing one into the English league calendar. Custom Minnesota Vikings Jerseys . Allardyce has been consistent in his desire for a post-Christmas break and as England manager he now has even more of a vested interest in players not being too tired come the end of the season, using his first press conference as national team boss to reiterate the point. It would help the Premier League and us at international level if we could achieve that, he said. January and February is always the most difficult time to get players through. And Scudamore told Sky Sports News HQ: We are not against it, a winter break. We are in discussions with the FA and Football League, its an integrated calendar.  Watch Sam Allardyce getting used to his new base at Englands training headquarters at St Georges Park. I dont know how close or near or far we are because I wouldnt want to compromise those negotiations, but if the three bodies come up with a solution we then have to road test that with the clubs, the fans and everything else.There is a willingness to try and make it happen but I cant put anything like a time scale on it. I think if it was easy it would have been done already.FA chief executive Martin Glenn said his association were also in favour of a break, but said it would not be feasible until the current three-year television rights deal is completed.  Sam Allardyce believes the introduction of a winter break would make England better prepared for international tournaments There is a consensus that it would be a good thing to do, he said. We can do our bit about fixture congestion and thats why from the quarter-finals [of the FA Cup this season] were not going to replays.Glenn also hinted that the timing of the break may be pushed back to January.What scared people about winter breaks in the past is the thought of it being between Boxing Day and New Year but it doesnt have to be then. It can be after the FA Cup third round in mid-January. Win Sky Q Ultra HD with Sky Sports 43 LG TV plus a Sky Q Ultra HD package including Sky Sports to be won EVERY DAY - enter now!

UFC 178, slated for Toronto in September, was shifted to Las Vegas while the December Montreal show was scrapped.The UFC is a month away from finalizing its complete 2015 schedule yet but there are some Canadian clues.The UFC has a March date reserved at the Bell Centre so Montreal should get its card. And Toronto, having lost its 2014 show, is also expected to host a 2015 show with several dates reserved at the Air Canada Centre.The first foray into Atlantic Canada has been a home run, with between 10,000 and 11,000 fans expected at the soldout Scotiabank Centre. The gate is expected to exceed $1 million.This is a good example of why were excited about our sport across the country, Wright said Thursday. Because you come to a town like Halifax and theres a real buzz in the city, which is great.Canada is a good fit for the smaller Fight Night televised cards and Wright hopes to bring one to Saskatchewan, either Regina or Saskatoon, next year.I think it will do as well as weve done here, Wright said.Wright is also interested in bringing future televvised shows to St. Minnesota Vikings Jerseys. Johns, Moncton, Hamilton, Ottawa, London and Windsor, among others.He also says he will lobby to bring a pay-per-view to Edmonton once the new area is built.

Saturday will mark the UFCs 17th Canadian show since 2008.
