User's manual: Suspended ban

Publish on 26/07/2021 at 10:00


Find out how a suspended ban is applied in Ligue 1 Uber Eats as part of a disciplinary decision taken by the LFP Disciplinary Committee.

The regulation concerning the suspensions - including a suspended bans - contains an important detail about the number of matches to be taken into account. The mistake is sometimes made to count ten matches from the end of the suspension received by the player, but this is not what the disciplinary regulations state.

According to article 20, which explains the regime of the suspended ban concerning disciplinary sanctions by the LFP's Disciplinary Committee of the LFP, states: "Sanctions against players resulting in suspended bans of one or more matches are deemed to be null and void if, after their pronouncement, the player has not been sent off, has not received a yellow card, or has not been subject to any new sanction by the LFP Disciplinary Committee during a period including ten matches of official competition - Ligue 1 Uber Eats, Ligue 2 BKT, Trophée des Champions or Coupe de France - played by his club".

Count of ten

Thus, the point here is to understand that the count of ten matches begins from the pronouncement of the suspension - and not once the player has completed the suspension that received from the LFP's Disciplinary Committee.

Therefore, in order to know until when a suspension can be revoked (by a yellow or red card), it is necessary, in the count of ten matches, to include the number of matches served by the player during his suspension. For example, when a player is suspended for three games, one of which is suspended, the suspension applies to the next 10 games of the team: this means that the player - who has missed two games due to suspension - will only be suspended for the next 8 games of his team, in the competitions mentioned in the regulation.

Ligue 1 Uber Eats players in danger of a revocation of suspension (at the next yellow card):
Jérémy Doku (Stade Rennais, two matches), Jordan Lotomba (OGC Nice, seven matches), Islam Slimani (OL, three matches), Tiago Djalo (LOSC, three matches).
