Russian clubs have been banned by UEFA from participating in the Champions League and all other European competitions next season, European football's governing body announced on Monday
“Russia will have no affiliated clubs participating in UEFA club competitions in the 2022/23 season," it said in a statement.
Russian clubs and national teams were suspended “until further notice" by UEFA in February in the wake of the country’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Russian team’s exclusion from the Women’s European Championship to take place in England in July was also confirmed Monday with Portugal taking its place.
The confirmation that Russian men's soccer clubs will not be allowed to take part in the Champions League came as UEFA also confirmed the exclusion of Russia from the Women's European Championship in England in July.
Russia's bid to host the men's Euros in 2028 or 2032 were also rejected. The bids had both been launched after the war began.
Russia was hit with a slew of sport bans following its invasion of Ukraine, including being barred from taking part in this year's men's World Cup set to take place in Qatar.
