Vanishing Spray To Be Introduced

15 November 2014

Help For Referees

The Football League is to introduce the use of 'Vanishing Spray' by referees into its competitions from January 1 2015.

The spray has been on trial in the early rounds of this season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy, and has proved successful.

Having received positive feedback from clubs, referees and supporters, The League has instructed the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) to begin using the product in all matches played in the Sky Bet Football League, Capital One Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy from the mid-point of the current campaign.

Blackpool's first match where the spray will be active will be in the FA Cup third round, and the first league game will be against Millwall at Bloomfield Road.
