Except the English Premier League, all other European leagues including the UEFA Champions League and the Europa league have implemented the 5 substitutions rule for the 2020-21 season.

The 5 substitutions rule will be an added advantage for all the clubs as it will reduce the workload of the players and will also reduce the chances of injuries.

The organisers have made no changes apart from the addition of the 5 substitutions rule. The Hero ISL season 7 kicks off on November 20 with ATK MohunBagan FC and Kerala Blasters FC playing the opening fixture.
