How to issue 2 yellow cards (=R7 red card) to a participant

If a participant receives 2 yellow cards in the same match, those 2 yellow cards need to be captured on the match sheet. Dribl has system automation configured, so that upon issuing the 2nd yellow card – the system will automatically convert the 2nd yellow into an R7 red card.


  1. Allocate the 1st yellow card to the participant (as per process above)
  2. Proceed to allocate the 2nd yellow card against the same participant with the appropriate Y code, you will be presented with a warning prompt: “participant name has already been issued offence cards and this Yellow Card will automatically be issued as a Red Card”.

Click on Done and the Dribl system will capture the 2nd yellow card and automatically convert that 2nd yellow card into an R7 Red Card as per example below

Why it is important to capture the 2 yellow cards to = an R7 red card via the above process:

a) Correct capture that a participant has received 2 yellow cards in the same match

b) Allows the system to automatically perform the conversion to an R7 red card

c) Allows the appropriate system rule automation to be run to expunge the 2 yellow cards from the cumulative yellow card count for the individual, whilst maintaining the R7 red card and issuing the automatic 1 game Minimum Match Suspension as a member ban.
