Following the EFL's general meeting, which is held annually, the governing body have approved two key changes, which will come into effect immediately.
SUBSTITUTES REGULATION CHANGE
During League campaigns in the EFL, clubs can now name 7 substitutes for each fixture, and make 5 substitutes per game. Clubs will only have 3 windows to make substitutes in a given fixture (not including halftime), which managers will be able to utilise tactically. Multiple substitutes may be used during substitute windows.
COLOUR BLIND FRIENDLY REGULATION CHANGE
For EFL League fixtures, home clubs are now able to wear their away or third kits should a challenging clash occur for people with colour blindness. Clubs will also have the opportunity to mix and match elements of their kits to ensure the game is accessible for those with colour blindness. The EFL will play a key role in helping to arrange this with clubs.
