A blow to Russia – it will not participate in the 2024 European Football Championship

UEFA and FIFA have disqualified the Russian national team and its football clubs because of the country’s war in Ukraine at the end of February.

The draw for Euro 2024 will be held on October 9 in Frankfurt.

Russia appealed the disqualification to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), but it was rejected in July.

“Russia is excluded from the UEFA European Football Championship qualifiers in 2022-2024,” according to UEFA’s official statement.

True, Belarus, which supports Russia, remained in the draw basket.

We will remind you that Russia also lost the right to participate in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, although it entered the playoffs of the qualifying tournament in March.
