Union of European Football Association will implement a fourth substitution in all European competitions starting this season in August.
UEFA has confirmed teams will be able to use a fourth substitute in extra time from now on in the Champions League and Europa League starting this season and also in the European Super Cup this August between Real Madrid and Atletico August 15 2018.
Initially, only three substitutions were allowed in the ninety minutes of play but the rule has been changed.
The governing body announced the change together with a number of new rules yesterday 5 July 2018.
Governing body confirm a number of rule changes including five subs per team to be permitted in the UEFA Youth League.
Clubs will also be able to list 12 subs rather than the current seven in the finals.
Coaching staff have also been given the green light to use hand-held electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets.
The equipment can be used by staff in the stands or on the bench if it is in relation to player welfare on safety, for coaching or tactical reasons.
This new turn off event means medical staffs are now able to review potential collision on laptops.
A fifth sub is now being allowed in the UEFA Youth League and the men and women’s European under-17 and Under 19 Championships.
The changes come into effect immediately and will also apply for the 2020 European Championship.
