The Football League is to introduce the use of ‘Vanishing Spray’ by referees into its competitions from 1 January 2015.
This follows a successful trial in the early rounds of this season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Fans first caught a glimpse of the spray in action during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Having received positive feedback from clubs, referees and supporters, the Football League has instructed the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) to begin using the product in all matches.
This will include the Sky Bet Football League, Capital One Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
