Russia banned from Euro 2024

Russia has been barred from qualifying for Euro 2024, as a result of its invasion of Ukraine, according to Uefa.

The qualifying draw for Euro 2024, which Germany will host, will take place on October 9 in Frankfurt.

Russia filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the bans, but it was denied in July.

The decision to ban Russian teams was first made by Uefa’s executive committee on February 28, 2022, and was later upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on July 15, 2022.

Russia has also been banned from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and were removed from March’s qualifying play-offs for the tournament.

UEFA said Russia is therefore not included in the Uefa European Football Championship 2022-24 qualifying draw.

The women’s team were excluded from this summer’s European Championship, with Portugal taking their place.
