Norway's football association
(NFF) plans to ban players from speaking to referees during
matches, it said in a statement on its website.
"We are working towards a situation where only the captains
can confer with referees during the game. Breaches will be
punished with a yellow or red card," the NFF said.
The new rule was part of a new "Handshake for Peace"
partnership with the Nobel Peace Centre to "promote the message
of peace in society".
"Norwegian football stands for much that is positive in
Norwegian society... [this] is a very important initiative that
we will develop jointly," NFF secretary-general Kjetil Siem was
quoted as saying.
