NEWS: Independent Review Panel Approves Quakes' Appeal of Bruno Wilson’s Red Card


SAN JOSE, Calif. – The Independent Review Panel, consisting of one representative from the U.S. Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one independent representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has unanimously rescinded the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card issued to San Jose Earthquakes defender Bruno Wilson in the 72nd minute of San Jose’s match against the Portland Timbers on May 15.

Wilson is now eligible to play in San Jose’s next regular season match against Orlando City SC on Saturday, May 18. Kickoff from PayPal Park is set for 7:30 p.m. PT and will be broadcast globally on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV, as well as on local radio AM 810 The Spread (English) and AM 1370 La Kaliente (Spanish).

Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Since San Jose’s appeal was successful, the club maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future red cards in the 2024 season.
