FIFA extends five-substitutions option into 2021

The IFAB Board of Directors has extended the option allowing up to five substitutions during matches to competitions scheduled to be completed by July 31, 2021, and to international tournaments scheduled in July/August 2021. The option was initially approved on May 8 as a direct response to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on soccer calendar and competitions.

FIFA stated, "The decision on whether to apply this temporary amendment remains at the discretion of each competition organizer."
