• New system will also be used in Carabao Cup
• Managers could face long touchline bans
The EFL will pilot an Ifab (international football association board) developed scheme that will see managers in the top four divisions of English football, as well as the Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy, receive red and yellow cards this season in a bid to clean up touchline behaviour.
Managers will receive yellow cards for incidents such as kicking a water bottle, sarcastic clapping or any other gesture that could be considered as attempting to undermine the match official. A red card would be handed out for actions such as violent conduct, spitting and stopping the opponent restarting play. If a manager accumulates four yellow cards, they would receive a one-match ban, eight a two-match ban, 12 a three-match ban and 16 would result in them going to Wembley to sit in front of a Football Association disciplinary panel. Subsequent fines, if deemed relevant, will be determined by the FA.
