A Touchline Suspension is a ban from any immediate contact with players, club officials and match officials participating in a match for the duration of the match. A Touchline Suspension may be imposed on a player and an official. A Touchline Suspension prohibits an individual from:
The FAW is aware that due to the nature of many grounds, the individual under a Touchline Suspension may stand behind the perimeter barrier surrounding the field-of-play but still remain sufficiently close enough to the field-of-play to allow them to continue coaching. This will be considered as a breach of the Touchline Suspension and will result in the Football Association of Wales preferring charges of misconduct against the club and player or official who is under the suspension.
Where a stand exists within the ground, the Football Association of Wales requires the player or official to sit in the stand away from the field-of-play.
During a Touchline Suspension, the player or official may communicate with the dugout via a radio or other electronic communication. However, the individual is prohibited from having personal contact with any coaching staff whilst the game is on-going.
A Match Suspension is a ban on taking part in a match and on attending it in the area immediately surrounding the field-of-play. A Match Suspension may be imposed on a player or an official.
The area immediately surrounding the field-of-play includes:

However, a player or official is prohibited from attending or taking part in a friendly or training match against a team from another club.
A club who permits a player or an official to attend a ground whilst serving a Match Suspension will be responsible for ensuring the terms of the suspension are adhered to.
A Ground Suspension is a ban from attending or taking part in any association football match played at a ground under the jurisdiction of the Football Association of Wales. A Ground Suspension can be imposed on a player, an official or spectator.
