From 3 To 5, Premier League Announces Increase In Substitution Ahead Of Return

The premier league has confirmed that there will be five substitutions when the league resumes on June 17

This was decided at the latest league meeting ahead of the season final stages.

The 20 member clubs met on Thursday to discuss a range of measures building towards the planned return to action later this month and agreed to the increment in substitution to five.

This is in line with the temporary law amendment made by the International Football Association Board last month.

Shareholders also approved for clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

Arsenal versus Manchester City headlines the fixture list for the June 17 premier league return.
