This rule, which was set to stay till the end of 2022, is set to stay and will be introduced as a permanent rule from the 2022-23 season. 

“Following a number of requests from confederations, associations, leagues and other key stakeholders for this option to be introduced permanently in the Laws of the Game (2022/23 edition), FAP-TAP today recommended that competitions should be able to decide on increasing the number of substitutes according to the needs of their football environment, while the current number of substitution opportunities (three plus half-time) should stay the same,” the body said in an official statement.
