Number of Players
A match is played by two teams, each consisting of not more than eleven players, one of whom is the goalkeeper. A match may not start if either team consists of fewer than seven players.
Number of substitutions
Official competitions Up to a maximum of three substitutes may be used in any match played in an official competition organised under the auspices of FIFA, the confederations or the member associations.
The rules of the competition must state how many substitutes may be nominated, from three up to a maximum of twelve.
Other matches In national “A” team matches, up to a maximum of six substitutes may be used.
In all other matches, a greater number of substitutes may be used provided that: • the teams concerned reach agreement on a maximum number • the referee is informed before the match
If the referee is not informed, or if no agreement is reached before the match, no more than six substitutes are allowed.
Return Substitutions The use of return substitutions is only permitted in the lowest levels (grassroots/ recreational) of football, subject to the agreement of the member association concerned.

Substitution procedure
In all matches, the names of the substitutes must be given to the referee prior to the start of the match. Any substitute whose name is not given to the referee at this time may not take part in the match.

To replace a player with a substitute, the following conditions must be observed: • the referee must be informed before any proposed substitution is made •    the    substitute    only    enters    the    field    of    play    after    the    player    being    replaced    has left and after receiving a signal from the referee •    the    substitute    only    enters    the    field    of    play    at    the    halfway    line    and    during    a    stoppage in the match •    the    substitution    is    completed    when    a    substitute    enters    the    field    of    play • from that moment, the substitute becomes a player and the player he has replaced becomes a substituted player • the substituted player takes no further part in the match, except where return substitutions are permitted • all substitutes are subject to the authority and jurisdiction of the referee, whether called upon to play or not
Changing the goalkeeper
Any of the other players may change places with the goalkeeper, provided that: • the referee is informed before the change is made • the change is made during a stoppage in the match
