Clubs were allowed to increase the number of substitutes from three per match in the 2019-20 campaign when the league restarted in June, after a three-month hiatus due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus

English Premier League clubs voted against continuing to allow the use of five substitutes in each game next season at their annual general meeting (AGM) on Thursday.

Clubs were allowed to increase the number of substitutes from three per match in the 2019-20 campaign when the league restarted in June, after a three-month hiatus due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Teams will revert to using up to three substitutes per match in the 2020-21 campaign, with a maximum of seven substitutes on the bench, the league said https://www.premierleague.com/news/1749286 in a statement.

Soccer's rule-making body IFAB, in May, changed the rules governing the maximum number of substitutes, looking to help teams battling possible fixture congestion as they tried to complete the season in a short period of time.

The IFAB said last month that teams could continue to use up to five substitutes next season, but left it up to individual federations and leagues to decide if they wanted to adopt the rule.

The Premier League added that clubs had also unanimously agreed to implement global soccer governing body FIFA's guidelines on the implementation of video-assistant referees (VAR).

The most significant change is likely to be an increased use of pitchside monitors by the on-field referee. Under the current VAR system in England all video reviews are made at the league's VAR hub at Stockley Park.

VAR was a source of significant controversy in England's top-flight this season, with decisions to disallow goals for players being marginally offside coming in for especially harsh criticism.

There is some variation in how VAR is used in different countries, and FIFA last month took over responsibility for the system from the IFAB.

Fifa wants to institute a uniform approach to VAR across countries and competitions, so that the laws of the game are implemented in the same way across the world.
