See The New Yellow Card/Red Card Offence Rules In Premier League

The English Premier League And The FA Releases The New Rules on Yellow Card/Red Card Offense to give more protection to Match Officials.

A statement on the Premier League website “The English football authorities have noticed over the past four seasons that intolerable behaviour by players and managers in their competitions have reached unacceptable levels in certain areas.”
