The Football Association have today confirmed that the 2016/17 Emirates FA Cup is set to feature the introduction of a fourth substitute for the quarter finals, semi-finals and Final.

Information, released via TheFA.com, confirms; World football’s law-making-body IFAB is carrying out a global study into a proposal that would allow teams to make a fourth replacement during extra time, and, subject to IFAB approval, The FA will play a lead role in testing to introduce this innovation for the closing stages of this season’s Cup.

This would mean clubs who have used three substitutes from the seven players named on their bench during the sixth round, semi-finals and Final will then be allowed to introduce a fourth player in extra time. This format was first trialed earlier this summer in the Copa America tournament.
