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 Sporting Kansas City’s appeal of the red card issued to midfielder Remi Walter in the 21st minute of Kansas City’s match against Minnesota United FC on Aug. 21.
As a result of the denied appeal, Walter is not eligible to play in Sporting Kansas City’s next regular season game on Aug. 28 against the Colorado Rapids as he serves a one-match suspension for the red card.
Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Since Sporting Kansas City’s appeal was unsuccessful, the club has one unsuccessful appeal remaining for any future dismissals in the 2021 season.
