New yellow card rule introduced in EPL
The English Football Association (FA) has introduced a new rule that will see yellow cards and suspensions become competition specific.

Before, players who were suspended either through an accumulation of yellow cards or red cards missed subsequent games regardless of the competition. With the new rule players who pick up a suspension in the English Premier League (EPL) can be legible to play in the next FA Cup game or League Cup will but will have to sit out in the next EPL game. The same case applies to FA and League Cup games where suspensions will only apply to the competition.

FA Statement

“For the FA Cup, FA Trophy and FA Vase, the accumulation of yellow cards will be Competition specific. This will operate similar to the Champions League and Europa League, where a player accumulates 2 yellow cards in the competition will miss the next game in that competition. The caution count will only apply up to and including the Quarter Finals for each competition. Cautions received in these competitions will therefore not count in the caution tally for the 5/10/15 sanction process. It should be noted this regulation is for cautions only and dismissals remain unaffected.”
