Independent Review Panel Rescinds Delamea Suspension
September 11, 2019 - 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Association and one independent representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has unanimously rescinded the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card New England Revolution defender Antonio Delamea received in the 9th minute of New England's match against New York City FC on Sept. 7. As a result of New England's appeal, Delamea is eligible to play in the Revolution's next regular season game on Sept. 14 against Orlando City SC.
Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including the MLS Cup Playoffs. Since New England's appeal was successful, the club maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future send-offs in the 2019 season.
