Russia banned from 2024 European Football Championship

Russia has been banned from participating in the 2024 European Football Championship, the UEFA confirmed on Tuesday

“All Russian teams are currently suspended following the decision of the UEFA Executive Committee of 28 February 2022 which has further been confirmed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 15 July 2022,” UEFA said in a statement.

“Russia is therefore not included in the UEFA European Football Championship 2022-24 qualifying draw,” it added.

Russian football sides and their national teams have been barred from international games by FIFA and UEFA until further notice in response to Russia’s war on Ukraine.

Germany, which qualified automatically, will host the tournament across 10 cities from June 14 to July 14, 2024.
