Clubs will be allowed to name up to seven substitutes and make five substitutions in Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two matches from the 2022/23 season.

For League matches last term, clubs were able to field three substitutes from seven nominated. However, for all League fixtures going forward, clubs will be allowed to name up to seven substitutes on their team sheet with no more than five being able to take part in the match.

Each club is only permitted a maximum of three opportunities to make substitutions during the fixture and a club may make more than the one substitution at each of its three opportunities.

Clubs may make substitutions at half time and any substitutions made during this break will not count towards the maximum of three opportunities.
