Jean-Pascal Mignot (born 26 February 1981) is a French footballer who plays as defender for FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in the French Ligue 2.[1] He made the international sporting headlines on 21 October 2010 when he was the first player in the history of the UEFA Champions League to be sent-off/dismissed without ever actually taking to the field.

The incident occurred during a group stage match against AFC Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena. Mignot was warming up on the touchline during the closing moments of the game, and strongly remonstrated against a decision made by the referee, Olegario Benquerenca. The official strode across to Mignot and produced a yellow card, followed swiftly by a red card, after Mignot had continued to speak out of turn.
