FIFA has officially announced that during overtime of the season all teams bude allowed 5 substitutions in a match. This is done to ensure that teams found it easier to cope with the compacted schedule.
The international football Association Board (IFAB) agreed to request FIFA to make a temporary amendment to the rules of football.
This rule will apply to all official tournaments, which will be completed until 31 December 2020. Thus, in the tournaments of the season 2020/2021 this rule will not apply.
5 substitutions teams can make no more than three times. If the two teams make substitutions at the same time, this will count as one entry for each of them. Replacement at half-time of matches will be allowed.
