The Independent Panel, consisting of one representative from the United States Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has unanimously rescinded the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card issued to Colorado Rapids defender Deklan Wynne for serious foul play in the 51st minute of Colorado’s match against Columbus Crew SC on September 22.

As a result of the Colorado Rapids appeal, Wynne is eligible to play in Colorado’s next regular season game on September 29 against the Seattle Sounders (2:00 PM MT).

Each Club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including playoffs. Since Colorado’s appeal was successful, the team maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future dismissals in the 2018 season (including the playoffs).
