Carabao Cup: Teams allowed up to five substitutions in rest of season's ties

Last update on.From section Football
The Carabao Cup allowed only three substitutions for teams.

Following a rule change, teams participating in the Carabao Cup can make up to five substitutions per match during the remainder of the season.

After a proposal from 14 of the 16 clubs that were still involved in the draw, the English Football League approved a three-substitution amendment.

Each team may name up to nine substitutes. The fourth round will be later in the month.

After concerns about fixture congestion, the change was made.

Open play will give clubs three chances to substitute, but not at half-time. However, multiple changes can be made at once.

Open play will allow for substitutions during the semi-final's second and final legs. However, it is not allowed to be at full-time or even half-time in additional time.

All unutilized substitutions can be carried forward into additional time.

Fifa raised the number of substitutes available to five in May 2013 in response to coronavirus problems, but the EFL removed the rule before this campaign began.
