How to add a Card in the ETS


This page provides you with everything you need to know about adding a Card in the ETS using Dribl.


Do I have to enter Cards in the ETS?

For ALL Matches (except MiniRoos), you (the Referee) must enter the details of each card that was issued during the Match to a Participant (Player or Team Official).

To enter a Card in the ETS:

  1. Select the Team logo of the Participant that was issued with the card.
  2. Select the Participant who received the card.
  3. Select the offence the Participant was sanctioned for.
  4. Enter the time (minutes) and period of when the card was issued.

Do I have to record the time of when the Card was issued in the ETS?

You (the Referee) must record the time of when a Card was issued when completing the ETS.

Entering the time of a Card is a 2-step process:

  1. Select which period the event occurred (Normal Time, Extra Time, or Penalties).
  2. Enter the exact minute that the event occurred.

If the Card was issued during Kicks from the Penalty Mark, you are not required to enter the specific minute into the Time (minutes) box.


When selecting which Period the Card was issued in, there are 3 options to choose from, which includes:

  • Normal Time – The card was issued in either the 1st half or 2nd half of a Premiership or Championship Match.
  • Extra Time – The card was issued in either the 1st half or 2nd half of Extra Time in a Championship Match.
  • Penalties – The card was issued during Kicks from the Penalty Mark in a Championship Match.

PLayer (Second) Yellow Card

If a Player receives a second Yellow Card in the same match and is subsequently sent off, you must record the 2x individual Yellow Card offences that the player was cautioned for in the ETS.

Dribl will identify that the Player has already received a YC, and will convert the 2nd YC automatically into the offence ‘R7-01 Second Yellow Card’.

EXAMPLE: A Player is cautioned for Unsporting Behaviour (Y1) in the 35th minute. The player is cautioned again in the 63rd minute for Delaying the Restart of Play (Y4).

Team Official (Second) Yellow Card

If a Team Official receives a second Yellow Card in the same match and is subsequently sent off, you must record the 2x individual Yellow Card offences that the Team Official was cautioned for in the ETS.

Dribl will identify that the Team Official has already received a YC, and will convert the 2nd YC automatically into the offence ‘R7-01 Second Yellow Card’.

EXAMPLE: A Team Official is cautioned for Dissent by word (TO-Y1) in the 35th minute. The Team Official is cautioned again in the 85th minute for acting in a provocative way (TO-Y2).
