As you may be aware, the FA have sanctioned the mandatory use of Temporary Dismissals (Sin Bins) as of the 2019/20 season for Dissent offences only. This is in accordance with the Laws of the Game as determined by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) who govern football worldwide.


Temporary Dismissals will come into effect from 1st July 2019 and will apply to all leagues within the country at Step 7 and below.


With the above in mind, the following website has been created to provide some further clarity and information on the process of Temporary Dismissals and how they will work on a match day -


 Kind Regards,
