Following consultation with Clubs, the EFL Board has agreed to increase the permitted number of substitutes to five in all Sky Bet EFL fixtures...

Regulation 33.4 has now been amended to permit:

  • Championship Clubs to name up to nine substitutes in their matchday squad, with five permitted to take to the pitch in any fixture.
  • League One and League Two Clubs to name up to seven substitutes in their matchday squad, again with five permitted to take to the pitch.

The rule comes in from 12 noon on Friday 20th November for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
