Poll: 5 Substitutions


Should football continue with 5 substitutions?

When football returned after the lockdown one of the temporary changes to the laws of the game involved the number of substitutions that could be made. Beforehand, teams were allowed to make three substitutions at any stage during a game but now they can make up to five changes per game although only on three different occasions which is to prevent possible time wasting by managers. The reason that this law has been changed is to protect players from playing too many games in short periods of time as teams finish the 2019-20 season. There have been some suggestions that this law will stay in place for future seasons so we want to know what your opinion is about the possible use of five substitions. Let us know by voting in our poll below. If you have questions or comments then you can email us at: and we can mention them on our podcast.
