Russia banned from competing in Euro 2024 tournament.

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

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

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.

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