PSL: 5 substitutes allowed until end of 2019/20 season

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) confirm clubs can use five substitutes per match for the remainder of 2019/20 season when it resumes on Saturday, 8 August.

There will be five substitutes allowed in a match, starting this weekend in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, for the remainder of the season. So, this means:

  • Nine (9) substitutes can be named (not 7) in the team list
  • Five substitutions are allowed per club during the game
  • Clubs will get three substitution opportunities during the game (plus half time, which isn’t counted as one of the three)
  • If both teams make substitutions at the same time, this counts as a used “opportunity” for both teams
  • In a cup game, unused substitutions and opportunities are carried into extra time
  • Teams will get an additional substitute and an additional substitution opportunity in extra time, taking the total of subs to 6 and opportunities to 4
  • Substitutions made before extra time and during half time of extra time don’t count as a lost opportunity
