Premier League clubs opt to ditch five substitution rule

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Premier League clubs have voted against retaining the five substitution rule for the 2020-21 season.Following the resumption of the 2019-20 campaign in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, clubs were allowed to name nine substitutes and make five alterations during matches to support player welfare. Some clubs wanted the new regulation carried over, but the Premier League confirmed they were voted down at the Annual General Meeting, held virtually on Thursday morning.“At the Premier League’s annual general meeting, shareholders agreed to rules relating to VAR and substitute players for the 2020-21 season,” the statement read.“Shareholders unanimously approved the implementation of VAR, in line with the full FIFA VAR protocol.“Clubs also agreed to revert back to using up to three substitute players per match, with a maximum of seven substitutes on the bench.”Since the change to five substitutes was implemented, Saints have been one of the top performing teams in the Premier League with 18 points from their nine matches. Despite having the option, Ralph Hasenhuttl only used more than the regulation three substitutes twice, in both the first two games after the restart.The VAR changes come as FIFA aims to have a unified approach to its implementation moving forward.There was controversy across several Premier League games during the previous season, but the new protocols were agreed upon unanimously.The changes will see referees use the pitch-side review area more often, with the Premier League now also using VAR to spot goalkeeper encroachment on penalties, while assistant referees have been told to keep their flag down for marginal offside calls until the attacking move has played out.Tags: FIFAPremier Leaguelast_img read more
