Independent Panel Rejects Sebastian Hines’ Red Card Appeal

Seb Hines red car appeal

The Independent Panel, consisting of one representative from the United States Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one representative from the Professional Referee Organization, has rejected Orlando City SC’s appeal of defender Sebastian Hines’ red card, issued in the 90+ minute of Orlando City’s game against D.C. United on September 9.

Hines will serve his one-game suspension during Orlando City’s next match on Saturday, September 16 against Atlanta United. Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including playoffs. Orlando has one unsuccessful appeal remaining for the 2017 season.
