Premier League clubs vote against five substitutes for 2020-21 season. Drinks breaks will no longer feature midway through the first and second halves.
Premier League clubs have voted against using five substitutes in the 2020/21 season at a shareholders meeting.
It was initially agreed in August the five subs rule – introduced after Premier League football resumed last season – would be scrapped and they would revert to a maximum of three changes during games.
A proposal was put forward to again increase the number of substitutions to five, with a total of nine players on the bench but the motion did not get the required 14 votes, so next season remains at three replacements from seven named on a matchday.
