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

Since the crisis began in February, the country and its clubs have been barred from participating in Uefa and Fifa competitions.

The qualification 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 decided by Uefa’s executive committee on February 28, 2022, and was later affirmed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on July 15, 2022.

In a statement, Uefa added: “Russia is therefore not included in the Uefa European Football Championship 2022-24 qualifying draw.”

Russia has also been barred from competing in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and has been eliminated from the tournament’s qualification play-offs in March.

The women’s squad was barred from competing in this summer’s European Championship, and Portugal took their place.

The country’s club teams were barred from competing in the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League this season, while Uefa also terminated its sponsorship agreement with Russian energy giant Gazprom.

The 2022 Champions League final was initially scheduled for St. Petersburg, but it was relocated to Paris.

UEFA Lets Belarus Enter Euro 2024 Despite German Plea

UEFA ruled on Tuesday to allow Belarus into the 2024 European Championship qualification draw, despite a government request from tournament host Germany to withdraw the team because Belarus is a military ally of Russia.

Belarus has been confirmed by UEFA to be included in the 53-nation draw, albeit the Belarusians cannot be placed in the same group as neighbouring Ukraine for security reasons.

The qualifying groups will be chosen on Oct. 9 in Frankfurt, and German interior minister Nancy Faeser last week urged UEFA not to allow Belarus to compete. UEFA stated that it responded to Faeser in a confidential letter.

In May, UEFA banned Belarus from hosting games and insured that its “home” games on neutral territory would not be attended by fans.

UEFA imposed Belarus sanctions four months ago, citing the Russian invasion of Ukraine as “facilitated by access provided from Belarus’s neighbouring country.”
