I’ve been sent off in the league, am I suspended in the cup?

If you receive a red card, how this is served will depend on who you pay for. 

For FAW Affiliated Clubs, playing Tier 1-3, discipline is competition specific. Therefore, if you were to be sent off in a league, you would not be suspended from the next cup game. You would instead be banned from the next game in the league in which you received the sanction. The same works vice-versa. 

For Area Association clubs, playing Tier 4 and below, discipline is across the organisation. Therefore, if you were sent off in a Area Association League, you would be suspended for both cup and league fixtures, until the team you picked up the suspension with, has played the relevant number of games. During this time, you would not be able to play for any other teams within your team. Please note, you would not be suspended from an FAW Cup Competition, unless the suspension states otherwise. 

If you are unsure on eligibility or when a suspension will be served, please contact us by raising a ticket, and we will be able to advise.
