UEFA has confirmed that teams will be allowed to make up to five substitutions per match in the Champions League and Europa League in the 2020-21 season.
A statement on UEFA’s website read: ”The UEFA Executive Committee also decided to allow up to five substitutions for all matches played in the UEFA Nations League, the European Qualifiers play-offs, the UEFA Women’s EURO Qualifiers, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League as from the group stage, and the UEFA Women’s Champions League, for the remainder of the season, in order to alleviate the burden on players caused by the condensed 2020/21 international match calendar amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
”Consequently, the number of players permitted on the match sheet will be increased to 23, when this is not already the case.”
