Red & Yellow Cards - Rules and Player Count

1. If a Player receives two yellow cards during the same Match and therefore receives a red card, the two yellow cards are expunged from his or her record.

2. If a Player receives a yellow card and then a direct red card in the same Match, the yellow card will not be expunged and will be counted in the Player’s accumulation of yellow cards.

3. The accumulation of yellow cards will be reset at the end of the last Match of the pre-season, the competition proper and any finals series respectively. This means that yellow cards accumulated in a pre-season competition do not carry over to the competition proper and yellow cards accumulated in a competition do not carry over to any finals series. Match suspensions incurred as a result of the accumulation of yellow cards will not, however, be cancelled.

4. A Player who accumulates the following number of yellow cards during the course of the Competition, must serve the following mandatory match suspensions:

  • four (4) yellow cards during the Competition, equates to a one (1) match suspension;
  • seven (7) yellow cards during the Competition, equates to a two (2) match suspension; and
  • ten (10) yellow cards during the Competition, equates to a three (3) match suspension.

5. A Player who accumulates two (2) yellow cards during the course of the Playoff Series, must serve a mandatory one (1) match suspension.

6. A Player who accumulates the following number of red cards during the Competition or Playoff Series, must serve the following mandatory match suspensions:

  • 1st occasion, equates to a one (1) match suspension;
