Russian football federation says FIFA and UEFA bans are discriminatory

Posted: Tuesday, March 1, 2022. 11:11 am CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Russian Football Union (RFU) says the FIFA and UEFA bans that prohibit their national team from playing in the World Cup qualifiers and their clubs in European competitions are discriminatory.

The RFU said on Monday that the joint FIFA/UEFA bans go against “all standards and principles of international competition” and against “the ethos of sporting spirit and fair play”.

The RFU said it was thinking of appealing the decision. That would more than likely be to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

The FIFA/UEFA decision effectively banned Russia from the World Cup playoffs later this month. Poland, Russia’s next rival. Plus, Sweden, and the Czech Republic, the teams they would have faced next had Russia qualified over Poland, had said they would not play against Russia either.

Other countries such as England, France, and the Netherlands also said they wouldn’t play against Russia and wanted the Russian National Football Team banned from the World Cup after Russia invaded Ukraine.

Russian club Spartak Moscow were set to play Germany’s RB Leipzig who will now qualify to the Europa League quarter-finals without having to play.

The FIFA/UEFA decision came after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) called on international sport federations and sport organizers to ban Russian and Belarusian athletes.
