FA Cup: Rules for 2020/21 season

Clubs will be able to name nine players on their bench and use a maximum of five substitutes.

Teams can only take three opportunities to make subs in normal time.

Any unused subs can be carried over into extra-time where teams will also then be able to make an additional change.

There will be no replays in the tournament this season but extra-time will remain. Ties will not go straight to penalties like in the Carabao Cup this season.

VAR will only be used in six of the eight fifth round ties – in the matches held at Premier League stadiums.
