UPCOMING SUSPENSIONS
(YELLOW CARD ACCUMULATION)

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.

Of note: The 2020 Canadian Premier League season is an abridged version (The Island Games)and is defined from August 13 to mid-September (TBD)

DISCIPLINE

The Canadian Premier League (a member of Canada Soccer) is monitored by The Canada Soccer Disciplinary Committee (CSDC) and its clubs and players are required to follow the Canada Soccer Disciplinary Code. Any disciplinary matters are determined and filed by the CSDC. This includes post-game review. This system keeps our domestic league in Canada aligned with the rules and standards found within the global game.

This CSDC applies to every match and competition organized by Canada Soccer or its Members and to breaches of the IFAB Laws of the Game, Canada Soccer By-Laws, Rules and Regulations, Code of Conduct and Ethics and policies/directives in force. It also applies to any breach of Canada Soccer By-Laws, Rules and Regulations, Canadian Soccer Code of Conduct and Ethics and policies that do not fall under the jurisdiction of any other body.
