The English Football League (EFL) has announced an increase in the number of substitutions in matches under its auspices.
From 20 November until the end of this season teams will be allowed to make five substitutions per game, reported EFL official website.
League One and League Two clubs will be allowed to apply for up to seven substitute players and Champion clubs will be able to apply for up to nine substitute players for each match.
EFL brings together the Championships (England’s second strongest division), League One (third division) and League Two (fourth division).
Despite the fact that the number of substitutions was also increased to five in the last season after a pause caused by the coronavirus pandemic, clubs are only allowed three substitutions this season in the English Premier League.
