The Football Association Discipline Handbook for the 2012-13 season has now been released, and this year the FA have made it an even easier reference point for Leagues, Clubs and players by making it interactive.
The handbook will be a useful guide to explain the disciplinary process and details the changes that have taken place over the last few years, principally the introduction of the match-based disciplinary system, and the adoption of this system for youth football.
This year's guide also includes videos and resources that will go into greater depth to explain the disciplinary process, as well as a new Leagues section to provide guidance for administrators regarding the Powers and Duties of the League.
