Premier League regulations

A squad can be up to a maximum of 25 players of whom a maximum of 17 may not be home-grown players. A reduced squad can be submitted if a club does not have eight falling into the home-grown category.

A home-grown player is one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three Seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).

In addition to the 25-man named squad, clubs can use an unlimited number of players aged 21 or under.

An Under-21 player means a player under the age of 21 as at the 1st January in the year in which the season concerned commences. Under-21 players can be added to the squad during the season.

These rules cover league games only.
 

Champions League regulations

No club may have more than 25 players on List A during the season, two of whom must be goalkeepers. As a minimum, eight places are reserved exclusively for ‘locally trained players’.

A ‘locally trained player’ is either a ‘club-trained player’ or an ‘association-trained player’ and no club may have more than four ‘association-trained players’ listed among the eight places on List A.

A ‘club-trained player’ is a player who, between the age of 15 and 21, and irrespective of his nationality and age, has been registered with his current club for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or of 36 months.

In the case of Chelsea, an ‘association-trained player’ is a player who, between the age of 15 and 21, and irrespective of his nationality and age, has been registered with another club or clubs affiliated to the FA for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or of 36 months.

If a club has fewer than eight locally trained players in its squad, then the maximum number of players on List A is reduced accordingly.

A player may be registered on List B if he is born on or after 1 January 1994 and has been eligible to play for Chelsea for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday. An unlimited number of players can be registered on List B provided the list is submitted by the day before the match in question.
