MLS Disciplinary Committee & Independent Review Panel Decisions Announced

November 29, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) News Release

NEW YORK - The MLS Disciplinary Committee has found Portland Timbers forward Dairon Asprilla guilty of failure to leave the field in a timely and orderly manner in the 90+ minute of Portland's match against the Colorado Rapids on Nov. 25. Asprilla has been fined an undisclosed amount for his actions.

Independent Review Panel Decision

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 the Portland Timbers' appeal of the red card issued to forward Dairon Asprilla in the 90+ minute of their match against the Colorado Rapids on Nov. 25.

As a result of Portland's denied appeal, Asprilla is not eligible to play during Portland's next match - the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Final - on Dec. 4 against Real Salt Lake.

Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Since this is Portland's first unsuccessful appeal, the club has one unsuccessful appeal remaining for any future dismissals in the 2021.
