FIFA has approved a number of amendments to regulations for the return of football as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The biggest rule change that the International Football Association Board (The IFAB)has allowed will see five substitutions being allowed during a match although managers are limited to the usual three opportunities to make these changes.
Substitutions can still be made at half time even if the three opportunities for substitutions was taken in the first half.
This has been done to assist in preventing player fatigue given the fixture pile-up that is inevitable given the short period of time there is to finish the seasons.
The use of VAR has also been allowed to be ceased for the remainder of the season meaning leagues are under no obligation to continue using the video technology when matches resume.
It is, however, expected that most leagues will continue to make use of the system to ensure continuity and fairness throughout the season.
For La Liga, the Spanish FA has also ruled to allow scheduled water breaks during matches.
Bundesliga is set to return on 16 May while La Liga will return on 20 June as it stands.
