BookmarkMANCHESTER, England: Teams will be allowed to use up to five substitutes per game during June's Euro 2020 tournament, UEFA's executive committee ruled on Wednesday (Mar 31).The five subs temporary amendment to the laws of the game was introduced due to the difficulties posed by playing through the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently applied to European club games and World Cup qualifying games in Europe.

UEFA also lifted the 30 per cent capacity limit on stadiums, opting to leave the decisions on spectator levels to local authorities - a move which will allow some venues to let in more fans for the Euro 2020 tournament.No vote was taken on the reforms to the Champions League competition from 2024 with UEFA set to vote on the plans at their next executive meeting on Apr 19. headtopics.comRead more: CNA »
