4th substitute allowed in Champions League and Europa League

4th substitute allowed in Champions League and Europa League

European football's governing body UEFA announced on Tuesday that as of next year, players are permitted to appear for a second club in each of the Champions League and Europa League after having already played for one in that season's competition.

UEFA said that following its Executive Committee meeting in Bratislava in February, and decisions taken by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) on March 3 in Zurich, more changes have been confirmed in relation to the new club competition regulations coming into effect for the next campaign onward.

For the Champions League final, the Europa League final and UEFA Super Cup, teams will be allowed to name a match squad of 23.

Only Mkhitaryan, who joined from Manchester United, has been able to appear in Europa League games while Aubameyang, who moved from Borussia Dortmund, said earlier this month he is "really frustrated" that he can not.

New kick-off times will be introduced too: including a new slot at 20:00 GMT in the Champions League, with two games on Tuesday and two games on Wednesday kicking off at 17:55 GMT.

McConnell announces hemp legislation with Ky. Ag. Commissioner
Hemp is the cannabis plant used to extract the non-psychoactive compound CBD that relieves pain and "doesn't get you high". McConnell (R-Kentucky) announced a bill on Monday that would legalize the growing of hemp as an agricultural product.

From 2018/2019, this rule won't apply, UEFA say it's to bring the Champions League in line with domestic competitions that don't apply the restriction.

Europa League games from the group stages till the Round of 16 will kick off at 18:55 CET and 21:00 CET. "All fixtures on the final matchday will be played at the same time". The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will all kick off at 21:00CET.

Players transferred during the January window between clubs playing in the Champions League or Europa League will no longer be at risk of being cup-tied, European chiefs have decided.

The changes have also brought alterations to the kick-off times for the group stages and knockout rounds.

Were the rules in place this season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would have been able to help Arsenal in their quest to win the Europa League and Philippe Coutinho could be representing Barcelona in the Champions League, as two examples.
