For the 2023 season the league is streamlining the sub player process. For those choosing to register as a substitute field player you will no longer be in a general sub pool but rather assigned as a sub for a specific team. This will make for a more expedient process and allow for sub players to more readily identify with a team. Here is how it will work:
Sub players will be assigned to a team. The team captains will communicate with the subs about when they are needed.
If your regular team does not need you for a particular week, there is the possibility of being loaned to another team should they need subs. The captains will communicate with each other on this matter.
Each team’s sub group will be made as even as possible in the same way the full time rosters are created.
Goalkeeper subs will remain in a general pool of goalkeeper subs and will be assigned as needed by a coordinator.
Players registering as subs are not guaranteed a game each week. However, those that are regularly available should see frequent opportunities either with their regular team or as a loanee to another team.
Players often register as subs throughout the season. New subs will be assigned as needed.
