Premier League clubs have agreed for five substitutes to be used per match from next season.

Top-flight teams voted in favour of the rule change at a meeting of all 20 clubs on Thursday.

Five substitutes were initially introduced in May 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the Premier League reverted to three subs for the 2020/2021 season and this campaign.

Previously, clubs had voted against the introduction of five substitutes on several occasions in the past two years.

“Clubs agreed to change the rules relating to substitute players.


“From next season, clubs will be permitted to use five substitutions, to be made on three occasions during a match, with an additional opportunity at half-time.


“A total of nine substitutes can be named on the team sheet,” a statement read.
