Russia banned from Women’s soccer tournaments; Men’s club ban expanded
UEFA has banned Russia from the Women’s European Championship in July and from participating in qualifying for next year’s women’s World Cup.
European soccer’s governing body said on May 2, 2022, that Portugal would replace Russia in the July 6-31, 2022, women’s tournament in England.
UEFA also announced bans on Russian men’s clubs next season. They will be barred from the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League competitions.
UEFA said its executive committee made the decisions to ensure the “smooth staging” of the competitions “in a safe and secure environment for all those concerned.”
