The meeting adjusted the rules of several football sports, including permanently increasing the number of substitutions in football matches. to 5 people.

Before 2020, the substitution rule for football matches is that a maximum of 3 players can be substituted in a single game. After the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the schedule of many football games was compressed. In order to reduce the risk of injury to players, a new rule of 5 substitutions came into being. It was initially a temporary measure, but at the meeting it was determined to be “permanent”. In addition, the meeting also decided to increase the number of substitute players on the team’s roster from 12 to 15. The new rules will take effect from July 1, 2022.

The meeting also discussed how to calculate the game time more fairly, whether to allow the kick of the ball and other issues, and decided to test this.

The FIFA Council is an international body that discusses and decides to amend the rules of football. There are 8 members, 4 of which represent the four football associations in the United Kingdom – the birthplace of modern football – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland Football Association, and the other 4 are representatives of FIFA.
