The IFF Event Disciplinary Function (EDF) has reviewed the match penalty given to Sebastian Kampe from Team Norway. A match penalty means an automatic one (1) match suspension and a review for possible further punishment. The EDF has decided to take no further action.

The match penalty (red card) was given to Sebastian Kampe from Team Norway at 55:52 in the match against Australia on Friday 28th April 2023 at the Men’s U19 WFC.

According to the Rules of the Game 2022 (Rule 613:2):  Match penalty shall lead to suspension for the rest of the match and from the following match in the same competition and possible further punishment according to the conditions and routines set by the administrating authority.  In IFF events, the decision on any possible further punishment is taken by the IFF Event Disciplinary Function (EDF). At the Men’s U19 WFC 2023, the EDF is comprised of members of the IFF Administration, MU19 WFC Jury, and MU19 WFC Referee Management.

It was the opinion of the EDF that no further action was required.

The automatic one (1) match suspension means that Sebastian Kampe is ineligible to participate in his team’s next game in the competition, which is the play-off match scheduled to be played on Saturday 29th April against Poland.
