Football set to trial blue card

From Midday Report, 12:45 pm on 9 February 2024

A blue card is set to be trialled in football, which would see players sent to a sin-bin for 10 minutes for cynical play or dissent towards match officials.

Top tier leagues will be excluded from the trial, but the cards could be used in elite competition from the middle of this year. If successful, they would be rolled out for all of football.
