The World Football Association announced, on Sunday evening, a package of sanctions against Russia. “No international competition can be played on Russian soil anymore, matches must be played at home on neutral ground and without spectators.”
In addition, the member state representing Russia will do so under the name RFU (Russian Football Association, ed.) and no longer under the name “Russia”. The statement stated that “flags and the national anthem are prohibited in the international matches of the national team.”
“FIFA is still in talks with, among other things, UEFA and the International Olympic Committee about possible additional measures, such as exclusion from all competitions, if the current situation does not improve in the near future.”
