In sports, offensive plays done by players and even coaches in the field is either warned,reprimanded or penalized by using different types of cards depending on the colour of the card by the match official.

For instance in soccer,yellow card and red card are commonly used which indicate the seriousness of the offence and the level of punishment that is to be applied. Yellow card in soccer shows warning to a player by referee and the player is forced to be cautious of is action for the rest of the match.

And if the player is yet found in another offensive play,he is given another yellow card which results to a red card leading to a player being asked out of the field.This leaves the player normally suspended for more than two matches in the tournament.

In the sport world we may not be popular with this other different types of cards,here are some of the cards used in sport world;

1. Green card

In different fields of sport,it is used differently.

In Soccer: It is used to show a fair play among players, tricks in football world has grown in the past years which lead to invention of the famous VAR to help referees in match decisions. The card was used in 1970 to 2003,until 2016 in the series b was used again.The player was shown the card and suspended from the match and was replaced by his teammate,as per the rule of the green card as it allows the player to be replaced.

In Field Hockey: It shows official warning when a minor offence has occurred given to a specific player or to a captain as a warning to entire team.A second green card for same player,results in yellow card which leads to a five minutes suspension.

2. White card

Yeah,we have a white card in sports.

In Bandy: It indicates five-minute penalty given to a player. During the period the player may not be replaced, until the penalty has expired,it not possible for the player to be replaced.

In Super Rugby: In 2012 the card was introduced for incidents of suspected foul play and the match official in not sure of the fouling player, or where the referee is unsure if a red card is supposed to be given out.

3. Blue card

Since the International Handball Federation on July 1, 2016 announced a rule change. First the red card is shown, then the referee will after a short discussion show the blue card. Following that a written report will accompany the score sheet and the Disciplinary Commission will decide on further actions against the player.
