As a rule, a player or a team official sent off from the field of play and/or its immediate surrounds, including the technical area, is automatically suspended for the next match in the competition. In case of serious offences, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is entitled to augment this punishment, including by extending it to other competitions.
During the league phase, players and team officials are suspended for the next competition match after two cautions and any subsequent even-numbered caution (e.g., fourth, sixth).
Cautions that have not resulted in a suspension and pending yellow-card suspensions expire on completion of the league phase. They are not carried forward to the play-outs or to the finals.
Cautions and pending yellow-card suspensions from the play-outs and the finals expire at the end of the competition.
