Bundesliga will permit 5 substitutions per game as it resumes the 2019-20 season

Bundesliga is the first major football league to resume the Coronavirus hit 2019-20 season. The season will resume on 16th May. The games will be played with a gap of 2-3 days.

The DFL have announced that they will introduce the rule that was set by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) last week which allows teams to make more changes during a game. They will permit up to 5 substitutions per game.

This new rule will help in protecting players from the increased injury rate due to playing every 2-3 days. The clubs can rotate the players more often thus decreasing workload.


The DFL said in a statement posted on their official website: “With a view to the game operations in the current 2019/20 season, the clubs have decided that the replacement contingent will be increased to five players per team in one match.”
