Blue cards for sin-binned players to be trialed by football’s lawmakers IFAB


February 9, 2024

Football’s lawmakers IFAB are to test out sin-binning players and issuing blue cards.

The attempt to be announced today Friday, would see Sin-bins, used at grassroots level for dissent, be extended to cynical fouls as part of a trial.

A player would spend 10 minutes in the technical area after being given a blue card by a referee.

It is not yet clear when the trial will start and which competitions it will involve.
