The International Federation of Football Association (FIFA) ruled out the introduction of the blue card in football.

The president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino announced that the organization is “completely” opposed to the introduction of blue cards in football, since “They would disrupt the essence and tradition of the game.”

The International Association Football Association Board (IFAB) studied the possibility of testing blue cards in football at its general assembly last Saturday, March 2. The Telegraph reported in February that players would be sent off to the technical area for ten minutes when they received a blue card for disobedience or a tactical foul.

“Blue cards will not be used in the elite, it is a non-existent issue for us,” Infantino explained to the British network Sky News. “FIFA is totally against blue cards, I was not aware of this issue and I am the president of FIFA,” added the manager. “Red card to blue card, in no way, we have to be serious,” continued the president of the highest world football body.

The manager added that the FIFA It is always open “to studying ideas and proposals”, adding, however, that “once it is studied, it is also necessary to protect the game, the essence of the game, the tradition of the game.”

Players would receive a red card if they saw two blue cards in a match or a combination of yellow and blue cards, but the new system is expected to be tested in lower level football leagues. It was reported that the IFAB is considering testing the new rules in the next men’s or women’s FA Cup.

In that sense, the rule that only the captain can approach the referee in certain situations or the increase to eight seconds of the time in which goalkeepers can hold the ball will be tested in lower categories. Everything decided will take effect from next July 1, 2024.

Red and yellow cards were introduced into football in 1970 and were first used at the World Cup in Mexico, and at the moment it looks like they are going to be around for quite some time to come.
