Concussion substitution to be trialled in FIFA Club World Cup next month

Last month football’s lawmaking body IFAB announced one of the revolutionary ideas to protect the players. IFAB announced that the concussion substitutions are to be trialled from January.

However, it seems that it will finally be trialled in February. FIFA is considering starting the trial in FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar next month which will be played from February 1-11. Though Premier League is also considering introducing this later this month. FIFA is also considering to trial this in this year’s Olympics game.

The head injury concerns have increased after there were multiple issues that happened in the last few weeks in Europe’s Elite leagues. Recently in the Premier League, Arsenal defender David Luiz continued to play with a fractured skull until half-time after a clash of heads with Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Jose Maria Gimenez.

This rule will protect the players more. A team can substitute a player regardless of the number of substitutions a team has already made.

FIFA said, “Teams participating in the Club World Cup are also permitted to make up to five substitutions per game rather than three.”

However, the teams will only have 3 opportunities to make the substitution and in the half time.

European champions Bayern Munich and Qatari side Al-Duhail are the two qualified teams in the FIFA World Cup. FC Bayern Munich has qualified as the European champions and Al-Duhail has qualified as the host. All the other side is yet to be decided.
