You’ve seen referee’s flash yellow cards throughout the football pyramid but did you know just how much the fine is.
Well, to start with it is not actually a fine, it is an admin charge from The FA.
A yellow card in Sunday League football results in a £10 “fine”, whilst in Non-League football it is exactly the same – £10.
Players in the top few tiers of Non-league football are earning upwards of £500 so a £10 fine isn’t really reflective but this is what the admin fee is.
Now here comes the reason you’re here to read the article – now the yellow card “fines” for all EFL and Premier League clubs, is, yes that’s right, £10!
We have enquired about Red Card fines and have been told it’s a minimum of £35 depending on the County FA’s and Red Card’s in the Premier League are based on player wages.
