“136th Annual General Meeting: The IFAB finally approves the option of five substitutes in top-level competitions

At its 136th Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Doha, Qatar, the IFAB ratified amendments and clarifications to the Laws of the Game 2022/23 which will come into force on July 1, 2022.

The AGM, chaired by FIFA President Gianni Infantino, and attended by representatives from FIFA, the FA, the Irish FA, the Scottish FA, the Wales FA and the administration of the IFAB, also discussed the ongoing trials of concussion substitutes, possible alternatives to offside and the latest technological developments to support match officials.

Lack of respect for referees and their safety have been identified as global problems. Members agreed to put in place initiatives to tackle these issues, including potential trials with body cameras worn by referees in grassroots adult football.

Regarding Law 3 – The Players, following a request from FIFA in May 2020 to protect the welfare of players during the global pandemic, the IFAB has introduced a temporary amendment giving national and international competitions high level the ability to allow teams to use up to five substitutes; this provision has been extended several times.

At today’s meeting, the IFAB accepted the recommendations of the ABM, the Football and Technical Advisory Panels Meeting (FAP-TAP), and the strong support of the entire football community. football, for this option to be permanently introduced in the Laws of the Game 2022/23. The current restriction of three replacement slots plus half time has been confirmed.

Members received an update on early results from the global trial with additional permanent concussion substitutes. Although more than 140 competitions are affected by these trials, the AGA supported the ABM’s decision to extend the trial until August 2023 in order to gather enough data to make a scientifically valid decision. Temporary concussion substitutes were reconsidered, but members agreed that trials should continue to focus on the permanent removal of any player with a real or possible concussion to ensure that player does not not continue to take part in the match in question. It was agreed that additional training is required to ensure that the trial protocols are applied correctly.

FIFA briefed the AGM on innovations that could enable more competitions to use Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology (VAR “Light”), which has been tested in over 100 matches, and successful testing with systems to help video match officials determine offside situations faster and more accurately (so-called “semi-automatic offside technology”). A video support solution is also being considered for a potential trial.

Other trials, such as the explanation of certain refereeing decisions during a match, a potentially fairer calculation of playing time and kick-offs, were also discussed. The AGM has made it clear that these tests and any other tests require authorization and will be supervised by the IFAB and FIFA.”
