The Premier League will come under increased pressure to allow five substitutes per game after the soccer legislative body endorsed a proposal to make the temporary rule permanent.

A proposal to make the increase from three to five alternates permanent was strongly supported at a meeting of the International FA Board (IFAB) on Wednesday.

In a statement, the IFAB said: ‘Following a series of requests from confederations, associations, leagues and other key stakeholders for this option to be permanently introduced in the Laws of the Game (2022/23 edition), FAP-TAP recommended today that competitions should be able to decide on increasing the number of substitutes according to the needs of their football environment, while the current number of substitution opportunities (three plus half time) should remain the same ”.

The move would still allow competitions to choose just three substitutes, but would increase pressure on the Premier League to do the same.

The temporary rule was first introduced in May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to allow teams to use five substitutes, instead of the standard three, to support player well-being amid a schedule of congested parties.

In May, the Board of the International Football Association (IFAB) said that the temporary amendment will remain in effect until December 31, 2022, “for all high-level competitions”, with its implementation at the discretion of the competition organizers. individual.

Major European leagues and major UEFA competitions adopted the rule after the 2019-20 season was extended to July and August, respectively, due to the pandemic.

However, the Premier League was the only top league in Europe to revert to a maximum of three substitutes in a condensed 2020-21 season, even as managers such as Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola raised concerns about player fatigue.
