Alan Pardew will start his record seven-match ban by missing Newcastle's trip to Fulham this weekend.
The Newcastle manager was handed the seven-game ban - including a three-game stadium exclusion - for head-butting Hull midfielder David Meyler.
Pardew, who has accepted the punishment, has also been fined £60,000 and warned about his future conduct by an independent regulatory commission after admitting a misconduct charge.
It is the longest ban ever handed out to a Premier League manager, and not since Brian Clough was banned from the touchline - from February 1989 until the end of that season for hitting fans, who invaded the pitch - has a boss at a league club been given such a stiff punishment.
