Premier League Approves Permanent Concussion Substitutes

4 months ago

The Premier League has said it hopes to start permanent concussion substitution trials from January.https://i0.wp.com/storage.waploaded.com/images/d9bc1a4831085509219936b9477fb30a.jpg

It follows the International Football Association Board’s (IFAB) approval of trials in the new year.

The new rule means permanent substitutions can be made if a player suffers a head injury, even if all replacements have already been used.

To avoid potential abuse of the rule, opposition teams will also be able to make a change at the same time.
