The Football Association Board (IFAB) plans to introduce blue cards into the game of football in a ground-breaking decision.
Players who commit cynical fouls or exhibit disobedience may be booted off the pitch for ten minutes under the blue card, which is a component of the sin-bin process.
The trials for sin-bin have reportedly already received approval from IFAB and will be revealed on Friday, according to The Telegraph.
The 1970 FIFA World Cup saw the use of yellow and red cards; the blue card would be the first to be introduced in football since then.
However, for the time being, only top-tier football competitions will employ the blue card in matches due to the trial of the sin-bin regulations.
“The new protocol announced on Friday will limit the new card to fouls that prevent a promising attack plus dissent, as well as confirming a player should be shown a red card if they receive two blue cards during a match or a combination of yellow and blue,” The Telegraph said in its report.
“Top-tier competitions will be excluded from initial testing in the professional game in case the protocols require further refinement, but elite trials could still begin as soon as the summer
The FA Cup and Women’s FA Cup may test the blue card system the next season.
