Sin Bin Changes for 2024/25

Regulations are changing regarding the temporary dismissal of players for on-field dissent.

The FA will change the regulations controlling the temporary dismissal of players (‘Sin Bins’) for on-field acts of dissent at the start of the 2024/25 season.

As of the 1st July 2024, any Sin Bin will be treated as a standard caution and incur a £12 administration fee (in addition to the player missing a period of the match).  Additionally, a player receiving two yellow cards for dissent and/or other offences will be dismissed from the field of play and not permitted to return.  This dismissal will result in a suspension and increased fine.  More detailed information about these and other disciplinary rule changes coming into effect in the new season will be published by The FA over coming weeks.
