Breaking!!! Premier League Set To Allow Five Substitutions As The League Restart On June 17

All 20 member clubs participating in the league met on Thursday to discuss a range of measures building towards the planned return to action later this month.

which is set to be in line with the temporary law amendment made by the International Football Association Board last month.

Shareholders also approved for clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

FIFA proposed the substitutions rule change to IFAB, which is responsible for the laws of the game, as players are likely to be asked to play matches in a condensed period of time during the summer months.

Teams will be limited to three opportunities during matches to make their substitutions – as well as half-time – in a order to prevent unnecessary stoppages.
