The Ghana Premier League (GPL) has adopted the five substitution rules for the upcoming 2021/22 season after reaching an agreement with the 18 Premier League clubs.

This follows the decision of FIFA’s law-makers – International Football Association Board (IFAB) the option of increasing substitutes to protect player welfare amid a congested fixture schedule in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to complete the 2019/20 season.

A number of Leagues across the globe adopted the rule when football returned in the 2019/20 season allowing teams to use five substitutes instead of the standard three – and Ghana will now follow in the footsteps of the other League like the EPL, SPL, La-Liga among others.

This rule would be in place for the entire 2021/22 season which is set to commence on Friday, October 29, 2021, and run through to Sunday, June 19, 2022.
