  Return to Main



A new substitution rule has been put in place for the following types of games:
   1) Connecticut Cup
   2) Southwest District League
   3) Southwest District Friendlies

The new rule is as follows:

Either team may substitute at any stoppage of play with the notification and approval of the referee.

  This rule is "with the notification and approval of the referee". 

  Please be aware that if a team has been fouled and wants to take a quick restart, the referee does not have to allow the substitution if in the referees opinion, the game has already “re-started”.

  Also, referees are the sole judge to determine the amount of additional time to add if they feel that time was wasted in a game – including but not limited to, excess substitutions or slow substitutions as caused by this rule change.
