UPCOMING SUSPENSIONS
(YELLOW CARD ACCUMULATION)

Accumulation of four (4) Yellow Cards (YC) in competitive Canadian Premier League matches results in a one-game suspension to be served immediately after the player’s fourth offence. The player would, therefore, be suspended for the next match.

Additional punishments are served for eight (8) and 12 yellow cards; two (2) and three (3) games respectively. If a player accumulates 15 yellow cards in the season, they will be required to attend a disciplinary hearing where, in addition to a three-game suspension this automatically triggers, they could face further sanctions.

Where a player accumulates three (3) yellow cards in a season they may automatically reduce the yellow card accumulation total by one yellow card should they play in five consecutive league matches, after receiving the third yellow card, without receiving a yellow card, red card, or other discipline sanction arising during such matches. A player may only receive this incentive once throughout the course of the season. For the avoidance of doubt “plays” means actually enters the field of play either as a starter or a substitute. Further if the consecutive run is broken for any reason the five count starts again from the next time the player plays. This paragraph does not apply to cautions received in the Canadian Championship.
