Five-substitute rule extended to 2022 World Cup: IFAB

LAUSANNE, May 28, 2021 (BSS/AFP) – Teams at the World Cup in Qatar will be able to

use five substitutes per match after football’s rule-making body on Friday extended

the right until the end of 2022.

IFAB said the rule, first introduced by IFAB last year in response to the Covid-19

pandemic, will remain in place until December 31, 2022 “for all top-level

competitions”.
