Russia will not be included in the qualifying draw for Euro 2024, UEFA and the country’s football federation announced on Tuesday.
Following the invasion of Ukraine, UEFA banned the Russian national team and Russian clubs from international competitions earlier this year.

“All Russian teams are currently suspended as a result of the UEFA Executive Committee’s decision on February 28, 2022, which was confirmed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on July 15, 2022,” said European football’s governing body in a statement.

“As a result, Russia will not be included in the UEFA European Football Championship 2022-24 qualifying draw.”

In July, CAS rejected Russia’s appeal against the ban.
“The Union is currently awaiting for the full text of the CAS decision, following the study of which a decision will be made on further steps,” the Russian Football Union said.
FIFA has also barred Russia from competing in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

Originally, the team had qualified for the European qualifying play-offs.

The Russian women’s team was also eliminated from this year’s Euro in England, with Portugal taking their place.

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

Germany’s interior minister has also requested that Belarus be barred from participating in the tournament due to the country’s support for Russia.
