The Russian national team and the country’s clubs have been banned from all European football competitions next season. This comes after the decisions taken on February 28, shortly after the military aggression against Ukraine, European football’s governing body said on Monday.
UEFA also ruled Russia’s bid to host the men’s Euros in 2028 and 2032 ineligible. This means Britain and Ireland’s joint bid to host Euro 2028 is rivalled only by Turkey, who also declared an interest in hosting the 2032 tournament.
The governing body said Russia’s bid was ineligible because of current regulations, which state that each bidder shall ensure that it does not act in a manner that could discredit UEFA or any other bidder.
Additionally, Russian clubs will not compete in UEFA's Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League next season.
