Following our Scottish Cup match, the club is required to complete a survey on the impact of the new initiative of the 4th substitute rule. Following a number of requests from the global football community, The IFAB decided in 2016 to analyse what impact the use of 4th substitutions in matches with extra time would have on the match and its outcome. Based on discussions with its various bodies, The IFAB drafted the terms of reference for this experiment so that The IFAB can take a decision at the 2018 AGM. The overall objective of this project is to establish whether the implementation of 4th substitutes in matches with extra time will benefit the game.

The research will therefore analyse:

1. What is the impact on the game itself? i.e. does the use of 4th subs lead to
a. more goals in extra time
b. fewer kicks from the penalty mark

2. Is there a player welfare benefit as a result of a ‘tired’ player begin replaced and thus being less susceptible to injury?

3. Is the 4th substitute used tactically or genuinely for player welfare?

4. Does the potential to use all four substitutes during extra time (and thus change more than a third of the team) have an unfair impact on the match?

5. How often does a substitute (and especially a 4th substitute) score or become significantly involved in the scoring of a goal (s) in extra time?

6. What is the impact on the emotions of the game?

The survey requires input from the coaching and medical staff and requires detailed analysis of the match itself including the timing of the substitutions, the positions of the players replaced and the impact on the score and match. All information is required to be submitted within 5 days of the match’s completion.
