Blue Cards In Football Is Being Considered

IFAB, football’s law-making body, is set to announce blue cards as a way of sending players into sin bins for dissent and cynical fouls

Football’s law-making body International Football Association Board (IFAB) are set to trial sin-binning players and issuing blue cards. It will be a unique warning method different from the yellow and red cards that were used for the first time at the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.

Sin-bins have been used at grassroot levels of football for dissent but their reach could be expanded to higher levels to combat cynical fouls — like when a player takes down an opponent to stop a counterattack

The brief statement further said, “Any such trials, if implemented, should be limited to testing in a responsible manner at lower levels, a position that FIFA intends to reiterate when this agenda item is discussed at the IFAB AGM on 2 March.”
