More changes for Premier League — Subs bench increased to 7

Another change coming out of the Premier League meetings this week is the decision to allow clubs to name seven substitutes in matches from the start of next season. The change was suggested by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy last year and replicates the regulations in European and international games. The Premier League agreed to discuss the issue, amid concerns that it would favour clubs with big squads.

Premier League voting rules require 14 out of the 20 member clubs to back any suggested rule changes. The current rule allows for five nominated substitutes and has remained unchanged for 12 years. But the increase will bring the Premier League into line with other major European leagues, UEFA and international tournaments.
