The Football Board of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) has spoken out that five outlets per team and game should be possible in the future in all competitions. The regulation was originally introduced because of the Corona Pandemic to relieve the players with a view of the tightly crowded calendar. At the annual general meeting of the IFAB, which was laid on a later and not fixed appointment due to Ukraine conflict, the change must still be ratified. It remains reserved for the leagues or associations to apply the regulation. For example, the Premier League returned to the old procedure with three changes, which Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp had always criticized with regard to the high strain on its professionals. In the Bundesliga, the scheme was introduced and maintained immediately after the reboot after the Corona pause.
