Football to allow five substitutes during post-virus fixture backlog

Lausanne (AFP) – Football teams will be allowed to use five substitutes when play resumes after the coronavirus pandemic, the sport’s law-making body announced on Friday.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) said in as statement that it had agreed to a proposal by world governing body FIFA for a temporary change to the rules “to protect player welfare”.

Teams face likely fixture congestion in a packed calendar as they attempt to make up for lost time when play can resume.

The lay off is expected to have an impact on player fitness levels too.

It also said that competitions which were using video assistant referee (VAR) would be allowed to drop it for the time being.

The change will apply to competitions scheduled to be completed by 31 December of this year, although FIFA and IFAB left open the possibility that the period could be extended.

Gyms and leisure centres were closed, along with pubs, days before the UK entered lockdown in March – Jeff Gilbert

The reopening of gyms must not be left until the autumn because obesity increases the dangers of coronavirus, the Prime Minister has been told. 

Fitness operators have urged Boris Johnson to lift the closures of leisure centres and gyms, saying exercise is a “wonder drug” that can help keep Britain healthy.

Research suggests obesity increases the risk of hospitalisation with Covid-19 and doubles the danger of death.

Gyms and leisure centres were closed, along with pubs, days before the UK entered lockdown in March, and there are fears within the fitness industry that they may be among the last things to be allowed to reopen because of concerns that infection could spread during workouts or in changing rooms.

UKactive, a not-for-profit body for fitness chain, has written to Mr Johnson
