UEFA Champions League

Five substitutes will be used at the Euro Nations League finals, according to UEFA.

Following approval by UEFA's executive committee, teams will be allowed to make five substitutions at Euro 2020.

The steps, which are intended to help balance player workload during a season shortened by the coronavirus pandemic, will also refer to UEFA Nations League finals and relegation play-offs, according to UEFA. The European Football Association's governing committee also approved the lifting of the 30% capacity limit on stadiums hosting UEFA matches. The appropriate local authority will now negotiate on capacity limits, according to UEFA. The ban on visiting spectators, which was imposed in October of last year, has now been extended until the UEFA club competition finals in May.

At Wednesday's meeting, the committee was supposed to approve a new, revamped Champions League format that would take effect in 2024, but the committee announced on Tuesday that a "final decision" would be made at the next ExCo meeting on April 19. The new timeframe was unanimously approved by the committee, according to UEFA.
