Sin bin option to be considered by officials

Football’s law-making body will discuss the option of introducing a sin bin for yellow card offences.

The body, the International Football Association Board, will meet in March in London for it’s annual meeting and will discuss the proposal to introduce the law at youth and amateur levels.

If successful, it could be introduced into the professional leagues within two or three years.

“…Particular focus will be given to the role of the captain and how her/his responsibilities could be enhanced as part of a move to improve on-field discipline and create better communication between players and match officials…” read the IFAB agenda.

Other proposals to be discussed include allowing national associations more freedom around the substitution law and perhaps increasing the number of substitutes.
