Sevilla FC will have new benches at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán from this Sunday. The club carried out this change due to the demands of LaLiga rules and also looking ahead to the UEFA Europa League final that will take place next year on 18 May.
The RAMÓN SÁNCHEZ-PIZJUÁN WILL HAVE NEW BENCHES AS A RESULTS OF NEW LA LIGA RULES
The previous benches had a capacity of 15 team members and LaLiga rules need this number to be 23 due to the increase of squad sizes to 23 and not being able to place the players in the stands following the return of fans. Although the new benches come with the 20 places required it has the option of increasing this to 21 if required. 12 substitutes, the coach, the assistant coach, the physical trainer, the goalkeeper goal, the team delegate, a medic, a physiotherapist or medical assistant are those who have a place, with the usual additional bench for up to five coaches situated very close to the new model.
On its parts, with regards to the final of the UEFA Europa League that will be played in Nervión, the biggest European footballing organisation require 19 places on the bench for the final, which Sevilla FC comply with after this installation carried on in past few days at the stadium.
