Twenty substitutes in one match ?! Rule changes to keep footballers safe from burnout and concussions could result in teams making 10 changes during play in the FA Cup games over the next month
- The managers are allowed to use 10 substitutes in the FA Cup each January
- The change was made to prevent burnout and limit the risk of a concussion

The managers are allowed to use 10 substitute players in the FA Cup in order to avoid burnout and limit the risk of concussions throughout football.
The International Football Association Board has confirmed that the new rules will be applied on a trial basis in co-competition from January.
The decision is made after the call to action regarding concussions and amid the hectic schedule.
The managers are allowed to use 10 substitute players in the FA Cup from January
The International Football Association Board agreed two rule changes in January.
The first gives a team an additional change in the event of a concussion, but the opponent cannot make a change of their own to compensate for it.
The second, which the FA wants to use, allows a team to use two concussion substitute players and maintain fairness. Opposing teams can also make changes at the same time.
The process will start in January 2021 and the results will be evaluated before the Ifab general meeting in March 2022.

The International Football Association Board will try two new rules in the knockout phase
FA chief Mark Bullingham believes the rule changes will protect players’ welfare.
Bullingham also expressed concern about the Premier League’s opposition to the increased number of substitutes.
According to The Telegraph, he said, “The reason we want [five subs] by doing [FA Cup] is the reason most of the other leagues around the world have applied it. That is, for the good of the players.
“Yeah, I’m surprised the Premier League didn’t make it. I think when we started at Ifab level we expected all the leading leagues to sign it off because of a very busy season with a lack of Ifab. ” Preseason. Whether this decision changes or not is of course up to the clubs. ‘
The first rule gives a team an extra change in the event of a concussion, but the opponent cannot make a change of their own to compensate for it
The second rule is that two concussions are replaced by one team. To ensure fairness, opposition teams can make changes at the same time
Premier League clubs will participate in a discussion on Thursday to decide whether to return to three submarines. However, it is assumed that the top tier for the concussion replacement attempts will be correct.
Headway and Dr. Willie Stewart, a brain injury charity, criticized Ifab’s concussion logs, saying they would prefer players to be temporarily replaced so that they can be judged off-field off-field.
In addition, Dr. Stewart, the new rules are like “lipstick on a pig”.
However, Bullingham responded to this criticism, saying he was “really surprised” by the proposals and the new rules to “go further”.
He said: “We will remove any player who is suspected of having a concussion. I’m not following logic there … I understand that there are two models that have different values, but from our point of view we see this as a stronger model, the safer model, and that is exactly what the medical experts advise us. ‘
Ifab has currently extended the five substitution rule for national competitions to December 2021 and for international competitions to July 2022.
