This sanction was already applied in the Women’s Euro Cup, which took place in July in England, in which Portugal replaced the Russian team, and in the Men’s Soccer World Cup in Qatar (November 20 to December 18). The Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) rejected in July the appeal of the Russian Football Federation, which opposed this suspension.
