Entries for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar have been expanded from 23 players per team to 26 players.

FIFA announced on the 24th (Korean time) that it has decided to amend the rules for the Qatar World Cup and expand the number of entries to a maximum of three players per team.

Earlier this month, the International Football Association (IFAB) decided to increase the number of substitutes per team from 3 to 5 and the list of substitutes from 12 to 15. As a result, in the World Cup, each team can have a roster of 11 starting players and 15 substitutes.

The expansion of the entry takes into account the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19). It was also taken into consideration that the World Cup event was held in winter. The World Cup is usually held from June to July, but due to the hot weather in Qatar, this tournament will be held for the first time in November. The season is in full swing in European leagues and the like.

FIFA has decided to increase the number of preliminary entries from 35 to 55. The 26 players selected for the final list can only compete in their respective teams until November 13th, after which they will join the national teams.

In the World Cup match, only 26 people, including 15 substitutes and 11 coaches per team, can sit on the bench. This should include one medical staff.

FIFA also announced that the U-20 World Cup, which was canceled last year due to COVID-19, will be held in Indonesia from May 20 to June 11 next year.
