The potential introduction of Blue Cards had been building up, with many anticipating an official announcement in the near future. Blue Cards were rumored to be a means of addressing certain types of on-field misconduct, providing referees with an additional tool for disciplinary action.

The decision not to implement Blue Cards at the elite level represents a clear and deliberate choice by FIFA.
