Blue Cards To Be Introduced For Football Sin-bins



The International Football Association Board, IFAB, is set to introduce blue card as part of sin-bin trials to be announced on Friday, February 9.

If implemented, blue cards will be the first major disciplinary change since the introduction of yellow and red cards back in 1970.

Players will be shown the blue card if they are guilty of committing a cynical foul, or if they show dissent towards the referee, linesman or fourth official.

These offences are all currently punished with a yellow. However the threat of a 10-minute time-out in the sin bin would be a bigger deterrent.

And should a player receive two blue cards in a game they will be sent off, the same as for two yellows.
