Independent Panel rescinds suspension for Chicago midfielder Mo Adams

Chicago Fire midfielder Mo Adams has had his red-card suspension rescinded and will available for the Fire's Wednesday night clash against the Philadelphia Union (7:30 pm ET | Full TV & streaming info).

The Independent Panel, consisting of representative each from the United States Soccer Federation, Canadian Soccer Association and Professional Referee Organization, decided unanimously to rescind the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card issued to Adams for violent conduct. The incident took place in the 89th minute of Chicago's match against Orlando City on May 26.

Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including playoffs. Since Chicago's appeal was successful, the team maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future dismissals in the 2018 season.
