Guidelines for Temporary dismissals (sin bins)

The 131st AGM of The IFAB held in London on 3rd March 2017 approved the use of temporary dismissals (sin bins) for all or some cautions/yellow cards (YCs) in youth, veterans, disability and grassroots football, subject to the approval of the competition’s National FA, Confederation or FIFA, whichever is appropriate.

Reference to temporary dismissals is found in the Laws of the Game 2017/18:

Law 5 – The Referee (Powers and duties):

Disciplinary action
The referee:

• has the power to show yellow or red cards and, where competition rules permit, temporarily dismiss a player, from entering the field at the start of the match until after the match has ended, including during the half-time interval, extra time and kicks from the penalty mark

A temporary dismissal is when a player commits a cautionable (YC) offence and is punished by an immediate ‘suspension’ from participating in the next part of that match. The philosophy is that an ‘instant punishment’ can have a significant and immediate positive influence on the behaviour of the offending player and, potentially, the player’s team.

The National FA, Confederation or FIFA, should approve (for publication in the competition rules) a temporary
dismissal protocol within the following guidelines1:

Players only

  • Temporary dismissals apply to all players (including goalkeepers) but not for cautionable offences (YCs) committed by a substitute or substituted player

Referee’s signal

  • The referee will indicate a temporary dismissal by showing a yellow card (YC) and then clearly pointing with both arms to the temporary dismissal area (usually the player’s technical area)

The temporary dismissal period

  • The length of the temporary dismissal is the same for all offences

  • The length of the temporary dismissal for The FA Pilot, it will be 10 minutes for Adult - Open aged Football and 8 minutes for Youth Football

  • The temporary dismissal period begins when play restarts after the player has left the field of play

  • The referee should include in the temporary dismissal period any time ‘lost’ for a stoppage for which ‘additional time’ will be allowed at the end of the half (e.g. substitution, injury, time-wasting etc...)

1 For the purpose of the 2017/18 Pilot for Temporary Dismissals, this briefing note will act as the guidance in lieu of it appearing on the Standard Code of Rules.

  • Where neutral assistant referees or 4th officials are appointed, they will help the referee time the dismissal period – alternatively each Club should nominate where possible a team official to assist. The referee remains the sole judge of the time.

  • Once the temporary dismissal period has been completed, the player can return from the touchline with the referee’s permission, which can be given while the ball is in play

  • The referee has the final decision as to when the player can return

  • A temporarily dismissed player cannot be substituted until the end of the temporary dismissal period (but not if the team has used all its permitted substitutes)

  • If a temporary dismissal period has not been completed at the end of the first half (or the end of the second half when extra time is to be played) the remaining part of the temporary dismissal period is served from the start of the second half (start of extra time)

  • A player who is still serving a temporary dismissal at the end of the match is permitted to take part in Kicks from the Penalty Mark (penalties)

Temporary dismissal area

  • A temporarily dismissed player should remain within the technical area (where one exists) or with the team’s coach/technical staff, unless ‘warming up’ (under the same conditions as a substitute)

Offences before/during/after a temporary dismissal

  • A temporarily dismissed player who commits a cautionable (YC) or sending-off (RC) offence during their temporary dismissal period will take no further part in the match and may not be replaced or substituted

Further disciplinary action

  • All temporary dismissals will be reported in the same manner as other cautionable offences.

  • Further disciplinary action will be taken in relation to suspension for accumulating a number of cautions and RESPECT sanctioning for Clubs

  • Sin Bin Offences do not attract the £10 Administration fee

Temporary dismissal systems

IFAB have authorised the use of one of the following temporary dismissal systems:

  • System A - for all cautions (YCs) or System B - for some but not all cautions (YC)

The FA will be using System B – temporary dismissal for some but not all cautions (YCs) and will apply for C2 Offences - Dissent

  • All other cautionable offences are punished with a caution as normal (YC)

  • A player who has been temporarily dismissed and then receives a caution (YC) continues playing

  • A player who has received a caution (YC) and then receives a temporary dismissal can continue playing after the end of the temporary dismissal period

  • A player who receives a second temporary dismissal in the same match will serve the temporary dismissal and then takes no further part in the match. The player may be replaced by a substitute at the end of the second temporary dismissal period if the player’s team has not used its maximum number of substitutes (subject to
  • the next bullet point)

  • A player who receives a second temporary dismissal in the same match and has also received a caution for another YC offence takes no further part in the match and the player cannot be replaced/substituted

  • A player who receives a second caution (YC) in the same match will be sent off and takes no further part in the match and may not be replaced/substituted
