Fifa to trial concussion subs during Club World Cup in February


IFA has confirmed concussion substitutes will be trialled during next month’s Club World Cup.

FIFA were involved in the consultation around such measures and have now confirmed concussion substitutes will be used at the Club World Cup.

The tournament, which is due to take place in Qatar from February 1 to 11, is the first international competition to test the new procedure.

FIFA will implement a protocol in which each team will be permitted to use a maximum of one concussion substitute in a match; this substitution will be able to be made regardless of the number of substitutes already used.

The new rules are hoped to send a strong message that, if in any doubt, a player should be withdrawn if it is suspected they have a concussion.

It is also hoped it will reduced the pressure on medical personnel to make a quick assessment and the simple procedure can be applied at all levels of the game.
