Supplemental Report Writing

If you are required to write a Supplemental Report because of one the reasons cited below, e.g., spectator issues, be sure that your description of the incident is accurate, contains just the facts, is succinct, and uses terminology from the Laws of the Game.

Supplemental Reports may be required for the following reasons:

  • Send-off offenses: committed by players, substitutes, or substituted players.
  • Dismissal: for irresponsible behavior committed by coaches, team officials, or other occupants of the technical area.
  • Serious injury: suffered by a player, official, or match participant.
  • Spectator issues: involving outside interference, thrown objects, whistles blown, or other problems in the spectator area.
  • Field of play issues: such as surface conditions, incorrect markings, dimensions, flag posts, or goals.
  • Game delays: due to weather, serious injury, spectator interference, or other causes.
  • Verbal and/or physical abuse: abuse or assault directed at the Referee or other match officials.
