Upcoming Suspensions

As of June 14, 2024.

The accumulation of five (5) yellow cards in Canadian Premier League regular season matches will result in a one-game suspension, to be served immediately after the player’s fifth offence. Additional one-game punishments shall be issued after the accumulation of eight (8) and 11 yellow cards, respectively.

Where a player plays in five (5) consecutive league matches, either as a starter or a substitute, without receiving a yellow card or red card or other discipline sanction, the player’s yellow card accumulation total will automatically be reduced by one yellow card. This is known as the Good Behaviour Incentive. The Good Behaviour Incentive does not apply to cautions received in the Canadian Championship.

The following players are currently one caution away from a one-match suspension for yellow card accumulation:



Yellow Cards Accumulated

Béni Badibanga Forge FC 4
Tristan Borges Forge FC 4
Matteo de Brienne Atlético Ottawa 4
Zach Fernandez Halifax Wanderers 4
Austin Ricci York United FC 4
Noah Verhoeven Valour FC 4
