Players who change to the substitute cannot go back to play in the same match. If any team has less than 7 players, it is considered to be abandoned. Like any other match, the League Cup lasts 90 minutes, with two sessions lasting 45 minutes each and a 15-minute break between half-time. Each club must have at least 18 to 40 players and players must be 16 years of age or older.
