FIFA And UEFA Suspend Russian Clubs, National Teams From All Competitions

Flippstack reports that FIFA and UEFA have today announced that Russian clubs and national teams are now suspended from taking part in all their football competitions until further notice.

This comes after Poland, Sweden and Czech Republic refused to play against Russia.

Football’s world and European governing bodies, UEFA and FIFA, stated on Monday that they had frozen all Russian club and national teams out of competitive fixtures until further notice.

“FIFA and UEFA have today decided together that all Russian teams, whether national representative teams or club teams, shall be suspended from participation in both FIFA and UEFA competitions until further notice,” a joint statement published on UEFA’s website said.

If the Russian-Ukraine war continues and Russia failes to seize fire, it could lead to excluding Russia from the World Cup.

Russia are scheduled to host Poland in a World Cup qualifying playoff on March 24 and if they remain suspended at that time, they will be out of the men’s World Cup, which kicks off in Qatar in November.

The suspension would cover all Russian national teams – including the women’s team, who are due to play in the Women’s Euros in England in July.
