The International Football Association Board [IFAB] will publish the detailed protocols for sin-bin trials in professional football on Friday.
The IFAB is expected to include a provision for blue cards.
In the trials, referees will have the power to send players off for 10 minutes for dissent or cynical fouls.
IFAB is set to give the go ahead for the extended sin-bin trials in senior levels of the game at its annual meeting in March.
There have already been trials in amateur and youth football in both England and Wales.
According to The Times, The Football Association will consider trialling sin bins in the FA Cup and Women’s FA Cup next season.
