# Question: In which of these sports does the clock count up instead of down?

Answer: The clock in soccer works very differently to the way the clock works in other sports. In soccer, the time on the clock counts up rather than counting down. The use of a continuous running clock that counts up means that a single referee can keep the time rather than relying on a countdown timer as other sports do. In most soccer matches, the clock does not stop running, except at halftime. Any delay during the game is noted by the referee who will then use their discretion to add on an equivalent amount of time at the end of each half. Unlike other sports, there are no timeouts in soccer that give teams a chance to stop the game clock.
