February 09, (THEWILL) – Football lawmakers are reportedly on the brink of a shakeup of the game, which would see sin bins introduced to the game of football.

The International Football Association Board [IFAB] has been working on plans for changes to the game, and Sky Sports is among the news outlets reporting that its plans will be unveiled on Friday.

According to the report, officials will carry blue cards, which if brandished, would result in a spell of 10 minutes in the sin bin. The report states that offences such as dissent and cynical fouls would see players sent to the sin bin.

It is expected that IFAB will give the green light for the trials at its annual meeting in March. IFAB has been looking at ways of improving player behaviour, while also seeking to find a balance for incidents that do not match the threshold for a red card, but warrant more than a yellow card.

Should the blue card be introduced, it would be the first change to on-field punishments since red and yellow cards were introduced at the 1970 World Cup.
