Yellow, red and soon blue? The prospect of introducing a new map in football has sparked heated debate. The German referee boss Lutz Michael Fröhlich is open to the idea. The blue card can defuse sensitive moments in games.

DFB referee boss Lutz Michael Fröhlich has shown himself open to the test phase of a blue card for time penalties in football. “I myself had experience with time penalties in the league in the past, when it was still possible in Germany. I can definitely classify that as positive,” said the managing director of sports and communications at DFB Schiri GmbH to the German Press Agency (dpa) on Monday on the sidelines of an event in Berlin.

But he doesn’t know how this could have a negative or positive impact these days. “I think it’s good that this test phase is being opened and I’m excited to see what insights emerge from it. In any case, you should be open about it,” said the 66-year-old.

The punishment is intended to impose a time penalty on players if, for example, they have prevented a clear scoring opportunity by committing a less serious foul or verbally attacking officials. The International Football Association Board (Ifab), which is responsible for rules issues, wants to decide on a one-year test phase for the new map at its general meeting in Glasgow on Saturday, possibly in English cup competitions.

“The advantage is that you have an intermediate tool, especially in the area of ​​unsportsmanlike behavior and fouls that cannot be classified 100% between a sending-off and a yellow card,” said Fröhlich. It could definitely help calm things down, for example when packs are forming. An open question for him is the specific design. “Because then you might need additional people and a penalty box like in ice hockey. I think that’s a bit more difficult organizationally, including how the audience reacts,” he said.
