British Sports Secretary: Russia is a bad thing in the world sports arena
British Minister for Sport Nigel Huddleston spoke about Russia’s bid to host the 2028 European Football Championship.
“The government’s policy is to consider Russia a traitor in the world sports arena. “This is how it should be treated, everything remains in force,” The Independent quoted Huddleston as saying.
The football federations of England, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have submitted a joint bid to host Euro 2028. Russia and Turkey have expressed interest in holding the European Championship in 2028 or 2032, while Italy has expressed interest in expected Euro 2032.
The selection of the organizers of UEFA Euro 2028 and Euro 2032 will take place in September 2023.
Earlier, FIFA and UEFA decided to suspend all Russian teams, whether national or club, from participating in tournaments under the auspices of these organizations until a second announcement. The reason was a special military operation carried out by Russia on the territory of Ukraine.
