Independent Review Panel Decision Announced

September 12, 2022 - Major League Soccer (MLS) News Release

NEW YORK - The Independent Review Panel, consisting of one representative from the U.S. Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one independent representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has denied LAFC's appeal of the red card issued to defender Ryan Hollingshead for denial of an obvious goal-scoring opportunity in the 13th minute of LAFC's match against FC Dallas on September 10.

As a result of LAFC's denied appeal, Hollingshead is not eligible to play in LAFC's next match against Minnesota United FC on September 13.

Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Since this is LAFC's first unsuccessful appeal, the club has one unsuccessful appeal remaining for any future dismissals on the 2022 season.
