Australia league to try red and yellow cards for coaches

1 min read

Australia will trial red and yellow cards for coaches and other team officials starting this weekend in an effort to improve behaviour on the sidelines at A-League matches, Football Federation Australia said on Tuesday.
Red card offences would include throwing a water bottle in a “dangerous or aggressive manner”, spitting, the use of insulting or abusive language or entering the other team’s technical area in a “confrontational manner”.
Throwing a water bottle to show dissent, sarcastic clapping of match officials, persistent excursions beyond the bounds of the technical area or “gesturing or acting in a provocative, derisory or inflammatory way” will earn coaches a yellow card.
“It will help fans and viewers better understand the issues that match officials face on a weekly basis and help promote respect towards them,” said A-League boss Greg O‘Rourke.
