FIFA proposes to extend substitutions to five until 2021

first_imgBecause “health comes first”, additional changes would be temporarily allowed, at the discretion of the competition organizer, and would also be permitted a sixth substitute in overtime.The temporal rule would apply to all competitions scheduled to start or end in 2020 and in all national team matches that will be played until December 31, 2021.However, a restriction would apply, since the five substitutions could be made, during the match, only in three moments of play or at half-time, so as not to lengthen the game or cause more stops.FIFA hopes that the proposal is approved by the soccer regulatory body (IFAB), and the decision would rest with the organizers of each competition.
