FilGoal | News | The rule of 5 changes is back in the English Premier League


The English Premier League announced the return of the rule of five substitutions again to the English Premier League, starting from next season.

The representatives of the 20 clubs discussed this matter and decided to return the base again during 3 breaks, with an additional period between the two halves of the match.

The rule of 5 changes was activated after the return of sports activity in England and competitions around the world in the 2019-2020 season and then the 2020-2021 season, due to the repercussions of the spread of the Corona virus.

The rule was canceled in the English Premier League at the beginning of the current season, to return to only three per game.

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola expressed their objection earlier to the decision to return to 3 changes in the match and that the decision was responsible for some muscle injuries.

In October 2021, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) recommended permanently 5 game changes.

Before appearing again in the English Premier League next season.

The FA also announced a set of new decisions regarding the next season, the most important of which is that the transfer market begins on June 10 and ends on September 1, 11:00 pm England time.

Starting from April 4, the corona examination will be canceled twice a week, and it will be sufficient to conduct the examination if symptoms appear.

The requirement of “clinical passports” to access previously restricted areas at training and match stadiums has also been abolished with a return to normal operations.

Manchester City leads the English Premier League standings, one point ahead of Liverpool, with 9 rounds remaining at the end of the season.
