Premier League ‘Set To Introduce Concussion Substitutes From February 6’

According to reports the Premier League will introduce concussion substitutes from February 6, 

The long-awaited trial was approved last week and the top flight is set to become the first division in the world to test out the measure.

The Athletic have claimed that, from matchday 23, teams will have two permanent concussion substitutes per game,.

Fears were raised over welfare of players earlier this season after a number of sickening head clashes – with the incident involving Raul Jimenez and David Luiz among those to have sparked action

The imminent arrival of concussion substitutes signals the competition’s desire to be at the ‘forefront’ of protecting footballers, the same report says.

The test still requires the green light from the International Football Association Board, the game’s lawmakers, but there are not expected to be any difficulties.

When a concussion substitute is made in a game, the opposing team will be able to make a change of their own during the same period.

Substitutions carried out due to a potential concussion will be permitted regardless of the number of switches a team has already made.
