EFL Clubs have approved a number of regulation changes that will come into effect immediately, including the usage of extra subs.

14 June 2022

All EFL clubs will be able to name seven subs, with no more than five used, for league fixtures in 2022/23.

For League matches during the 2021/22 season, Clubs were able to field three substitutes from seven nominated.

For all League fixtures going forward, Clubs will be allowed to name up to seven substitutes on their team sheet with no more than five being able to take part in the match.

Each Club is only permitted a maximum of three opportunities to make substitutions during the fixture and a Club may make more than the one substitution at each of its three opportunities.

Clubs may make substitutions at half-time and any substitutions made during this break will not count towards the maximum of three opportunities.
