    I dont know the answer to your question specifically. But I am going to guess not on 2 counts.
    1) surely by the time you get to select group you've amassed enough whistles and cards to get by. I have at least 3 sets of cards and 3 whistles already after 4 -5 years.
    2) I have noticed that some have different whistles. Moalst have fox 40 byt different variations such as finger grip and i have seen sonik blast be used too.

    lol, a perfect reason why you need a few spares of everything, you are lucky you must have a local shop where you can buy cards and whistles

    Yeah, I think that's a degree of personal preference when it comes to stuff like whistles and cards. I've see some write on the card on what looks like masking tape, while others use either cards you can directly write on or clear skins. None use a separate notebook! Same back in the old days when you were allowed to use a round red card - some referees did, while others stuck to a rectangular red.

    Oh I agree, but I do see the logic in it as well. Especially when both are kept in the same pocket/wallet, it means you can pick the correct colour without having to take your eyes off the players.
