Top Two Fastest Red Cards In The History Of Football

1. Lee Todd - CROSS PARK FARM CELTIC VS TAUNTON EAST REACH WANDERERS, 2000 - 2 SECONDS

This is exactly what happened to Lee Todd who holds the record for the fastest red card in history. It was definitely worth waiting for as Todd who was playing for Cross Park Farm Celtic was sent off as quick as he came on to the field. The reason for the almost instant dismissal was down to foul and abusive language. Todd was given a red card after he was taken aback by the ref's whistle as he blew for the start of the game by proclaiming ‘F** me, that was loud.

2. DAVID PRATT, CHIPPENHAM TOWN VS BASHLEY, 2009 - 3 SECONDS

The second fastest red card ever in English football came after only 3 seconds in a match between Chippenham Town and Bashley. Even though strikers are not known for their willingness to tackle, David Pratt made a two-footed challenge straight from kick off that was deemed too dangerous by the referee. Pratt made no excuses though, as he later said “He thinks it was a red card so I have to take it”.
