Power Play:

The Power Play rule, introduced by the FA in 2018, allows junior grassroots football teams to bring on extra players when they fall four goals behind

The rule is aimed at teams from under-sixes to under-11s in five and seven-a-side games.

The rule works as follows

  • If a team is losing by a four goal difference they can put an additional player on – so 5v5 becomes 6v5.
  • If the score returns to less than a four goal difference the team takes off a player. It does not have to be the last player to come on.
