Premier League clubs agree to five substitutes from 2022-23 season
Premier League clubs will be able to make five substitutions each game from next season after shareholders agreed to change the rules.
The substitutions can be made on three occasions during a match, plus at half-time, and a total of nine substitutes can be named on the teamsheet
Five substitutes were introduced across the game in May 2020 after the shutdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The rule was then abandoned for the compressed 2020-21 season.
The Premier League was the only major competition to ditch the rule because some clubs felt it gave those with bigger squads an unfair advantage.
At a shareholder meeting of all 20 clubs, it was also confirmed that this summer's transfer window will open on 10 June and will close at 23:00 BST on 1 September, in line with other European leagues.
In addition, the Premier League will remove twice-weekly testing of players and staff from 4 April and move to symptomatic testing only.
Other key updates included the removal of the requirement for clinical passports to access previously restricted areas at training grounds and on matchdays, as the Premier League returns to business-as-usual operations.
A Premier League statement said: "The wellbeing of players and staff remains a priority and the Premier League will continue to monitor the national Covid-19 situation and adapt league-wide protocols as required, in line with the latest guidance from public health authorities and medical experts."https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/60945430
