All cautions and red cards can be appealed on the grounds of Mistaken Identity. An appeal for Mistaken Identity should only be submitted when the referee has shown the card to the wrong player on the day. If you believe the referee has recorded the wrong name when submitting a caution or red card, please contact the Football Services Team via Discipline@Berks-BucksFA.com or on 01235 544890. We will investigate the matter further and amend the case if appropriate.
Certain red cards can be appealed on the grounds of Wrongful Dismissal.
Claims for Mistaken Identity and Wrongful Dismissal can both be submitted via the "Discipline" tab on the Whole Game System.
We always recommend confirming with the referee at the end of the game the names of all players cautioned/sent off during the game, and the reason for the cards.
There are strict deadlines for submitting yellow and red card appeals, so please refer to our Football Services Guides on Mistaken Identity and Wrongful Dismissal for more information.
