FIFA raises the World Cup squad limit to 26 players.

Groups will be able to choose up to 26 players for this year’s World Cup after FIFA, the governing body of international soccer, increased the most extreme crew limit by three on Thursday.

FIFA stated that the move was made due to the competition’s unexpected scheduling as well as the impact of COVID-19 on workers. The spectacular event in Qatar will take place from November 21 to December 18.

“The number of players to be recognized for the last rundown has been increased to no less than 23 and a maximum of 26,” the proclamation stated.

“The number of players to be remembered for the last rundown has been extended to something like 23 with a limit of 26,” the declaration stated.

“Around 26 people (up to 15 replacements and 11 group officials) will be allowed to sit in the group seat.”

Last year, UEFA made a similar decision, allowing teams to select an additional three players for the European Championship due to the epidemic.
The International Football Association Board approved the use of five substitutes in matches earlier this month, which was first perceived as a deviation from the rules owing to COVID-19.
