The play was reviewed under Disciplinary Committee Parameter 3, in which officials see an incident, and do not issue a red card or act on a case of clear and obvious simulation/embellishment that meets the conditions for suspension outlined in Section VI.B.4.d.

Klimala will serve his suspension during New York's match on Saturday, June 18 against Toronto FC.
