Red card appeals 2018

Important information about Red Card appeals over the festive period

Ahead of the festive period, please see below the deadline dates for any red card appeals lodged during this time. As always, we will ensure any appeals are heard before the suspension is due to start. These are strict deadlines and we will not be able to hear any appeal submitted outside of the timeframes. During this time all appeals must be notified by email to Discipline@LeicestershireFA.com   

After 1st Jan, the usual timeframes will apply i.e. notification must be received by the second working day following the fixture, and all correspondence for the appeal (and video evidence if available) must be received by the fourth working day.

Please remember:

  • For a red card appeal to be successful it must be demonstrated that the referee made an obvious error in law when dismissing the player.
  • Appeals are considered on correspondence (and video evidence) only. This includes the referee’s report, and any emails or statements supplied by the Club.
  • If an appeal is unsuccessful the Club will be invoiced for the relevant appeal fee (Step 5-7 £50, outside NLS £30).
  • If the appeal is unsuccessful the suspension for the red card will begin on the seventh day following the match in which the red card was issued, and the admin fee and fine will remain.
  • If the appeal is successful the suspension and fine will be removed, but the £15 admin fee and record of the dismissal remains on the player’s record.
