Russia is barred from the qualifying draw for Euro 2024

The ruling body of European football declared in a statement that “all Russian teams are currently suspended after the decision of the UEFA Executive Committee on 28 February 2022 which has further been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 15 July 2022.”

“Russia is so excluded from the UEFA European Football Championship qualification draw for 2022–24.”

The CAS dismissed Russia’s appeal against the embargo in July.

The Russian Football Union stated: “The Union is presently awaiting the entire text of the CAS ruling, following the analysis of which a decision will be made on subsequent steps.”

FIFA also decided to bar Russia from the 2018 World Cup in Qatar.

The team had initially earned a spot in the European qualifying round.

In addition, Portugal took the position of the Russian women’s team at this year’s Euro in England.

Germany will host the 2024 European Championship, and the qualifying draw is scheduled for October 9 in Frankfurt.

Due to Belarus’ support for Russia, Germany’s interior minister has also requested that Belarus be barred from the competition.
