A sixth substitution for concussions available for teams at 2024 Copa America


A sixth substitution for concussions will be available for teams to make at the 2024 Copa America.

National team coaches at the 2024 Copa America will be allowed to make a sixth substitution. CONMEBOL announced that a sixth substitution in cases of a possible concussion or head trauma will be made available for teams at the 2024 Copa America.

The coaching staff would notify the referee or fourth official through a pink substitution pass. CONMEBOL stated the following in their announcement:

“The substitution for concussion will take place regardless of the number of substitutions until the moment it happens. When the concussion substitution takes place, the opposing team will automatically be allowed to make an additional substitution.”

Team doctors will have 24 hours to submit a medical report to CONMEBOL about the player.
