During the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, single yellow cards will only be deleted after the quarter-finals. This was communicated to the Participating Member Associations in circular 21, 30 April 2010.
Suspensions as a consequence of two cautions imposed during different matches will automatically result in a suspension in the team’s next match.
If a player is sent off as a result of a direct or indirect red card, he will automatically be suspended from his team’s next match. In addition, further sanctions (i.e. additional suspension, fine, etc) may be imposed for a direct red card.
