LaLiga will continue with five substitutions for the 2020-21 season

LaLiga teams will be able to make five more substitutions next season, said the Spanish Football Association (RFEF).

The RFEF Steering Committee met on Tuesday to discuss rules for the 2020-21 campaign and it was decided to allow five more changes.

The move was originally introduced after a long hiatus due to Covid-19, which gave the team limited time to properly prepare for a restart in June.

However, in a statement on Tuesday, the RFEF announced that countries in the LaLiga and Segunda divisions would again be allowed to make five substitutions – albeit within three blocks – to avoid disruption.

And because after blocking, teams were allowed to select 23 players on their team for match day (not 18), meaning they could have 12 players on the bench.

The proposal is submitted by the LFP (Professional Football League) and must be approved by the RFEF before the new season, which starts this weekend.
