Sin-bin plan to be looked at by football's lawmaking body Ifab

Breaking news

Football's law-making body Ifab is to look at introducing sin-bins for yellow-card offences.

The proposal is on the body's agenda for its annual meeting in London in March this year.

The measure has been tested in Uefa development competitions and some amateur leagues in recent years.

Other proposals to be discussed at the meeting include allowing national associations more freedom to decide on the number of substitutions in a game.

The move is intended to help the development of the game at lower levels, "by promoting and encouraging more people to take part in the game," the International Football Association Board agenda reads.

There is also a line in the release about "fairness" and that "particular focus will be given to the role of the captain and how her/his responsibilities could be enhanced as part of a move to improve on-field discipline and create better communication between players and match officials".

This is likely to refer to a suggestion by Marco van Basten, the chief technical officer of governing body Fifa, that only the captain should be able to speak to the referee.
