The Spanish Football Federation confirms its support for this measure.
According to FIFA, "this transitional amendment comes into effect with immediate effect, since a good number of matches will be played in a short period and with different weather conditions than expected, which could have a negative impact on the health of footballers " In any case, as the statement clarifies, "the organizers of the competitions will continue to have the power to decide whether or not to apply this transitional modification."

The Spanish Football Federation has issued a statement announcing that “the Delegate Commission has unanimously approved the extension to 5 changes per team in matches of all national categories in an extraordinary way. These changes can be made in three moments of the match, in accordance with what the IFAB establishes, with the aim of protecting the health of the players, after the limitations that the period of confinement has meant for their training. This measure has been previously communicated to the League, through Javier Tebas, who has shown his support for it. On the other hand, "it has been established that the teams will be able to summon 23 players in the First Division for the matches."
