Clubs Vote To Make Changes

Football League clubs have decided to a make a change to the number of substitutes that can be named for matches in the nPower Football League after an EGM at the King Power Stadium in Leicester. Clubs voted to reduce the allowed number of substitutes from seven to five for all league matches with a Football League spokesman saying:

'This was felt to be a sensible and prudent step given the financial challenges facing many football clubs and the commitment made earlier this summer to adopt UEFA's Financial Fair Play framework. Clubs will still be permitted to name 7 substitutes in the Carling Cup and FA Cup and 5 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy."
