FIFA have confirmed that the temporary  change to allow five substitutions in a match has been extended into the 2020/21 season.

The change of law was brought in to allow clubs to rotate their teams after a three-month lay-off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The different weather conditions was also a major role in IFAB’s decision to extend substitutions to five per game.

However, the change in ruling came under some criticism with clubs suggesting that the alterations favours clubs with bigger squads, unbalancing the playing field.
