Earlier, on February 28, FIFA and the International Federation of FIFA (FIFA) withdrew all Russian teams and teams from their matches “until further notice”, which led to Russia losing the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. The trophy in Qatar is scheduled for the end of this year.
On March 30, the Russian Federation withdrew its appeal against FIFA’s exclusion from the World Cup qualifiers, following the rejection of his appeal by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for a fine for his exclusion from international competition. This decision was not then considered a foregone conclusion of the future judgment of the Sports Court in the disputed matter.
UEFA also announced that it had not met the terms of the offer made by the Russian Football Association to host the 2028 or 2032 European Cup finals.
The sanctions also affected the Russian national team, which is in the runners-up to the European League League, the 2023 Women’s World Cup qualifiers, the European Under-21 Cup, the conference league and the Futsal Tournament.
These results could lead to Zenit St. Petersburg losing the Champions League title this season to losing their place in the Champions League next season.
