A temporary revolution in football. Coaches will temporarily be able to use five substitutions instead of three
Due to the coronavirus crisis, football teams will be able to temporarily use five substitutions in matches instead of the current three. A revolutionary change in the rules was announced today by the world federation FIFA. The novelty will apply in all competitions ending on 31 December this year.
FIFA has stated that it will be up to the individual organizers of the competitions whether they will take advantage of the change. According to the World Federation, the novelty was introduced due to the busy calendar that teams are waiting for after the release of coronavirus measures and the resumption of competitions.
