FOOTIE chiefs are set to introduce a major change to disciplining players with the implementation of BLUE CARDS, it’s been claimed.
And sin-bin trials are set to be rolled out in a series of shock trials on Friday.
“That’s according to The Telegraphs, who claim the International Football Association Board have agreed to the introduction of the new card – the major disciplinary change since the introduction of yellow and red cards back in 1970.
Players will face ten-minute stints in the sin bin if they are guilty of committing a cynical foul or if they show dissent towards the referee, linesman or fourth official.
Blues cards have already successfully been trialled at the grassroots level in Wales.
The colour was reportedly chosen over orange over fears there could be confusion between yellow and red cards.
IFAB will announce the revolutionary rule change on Friday, although it won’t be implemented at the top level straight away.
