The RFU will appeal to the CAS UEFA’s decision to withdraw the Russian teams from tournaments in the 2022/2023 season
The Russian Football Federation (RFU) plans to reapply to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). RIA Novosti reports on the words of the president of the RFU, Alexander Dyukov.
The RFU plans to appeal the decision by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to remove Russian teams from international tournaments in the 2022/2023 season. “We do not agree with this decision, we will send an appropriate appeal,” Dyukov said. He pointed out that the appeal refers only to the matches of the national teams.
Previously, Dynamo, CSKA, Zenit and Sochi decided to apply for CAS. The clubs requested an expedited review of the complaint. Lawyer Andriy Timchuk said the teams’ chances of appealing UEFA’s decision are not very high.
On May 2, UEFA decided on the participation of Russian teams in the tournaments of the 2022/2023 season. Russian football clubs were suspended from European competitions and the national team was kicked out of the Nations League. UEFA also rejected Russia’s bid to host the 2028 and 2032 European Football Championships.
