Why FIFA banned Russia

FIFA, the most prominent football organization, has excluded Russia from the Football World Cup 2022, to be held in Qatar this time. FIFA had given a statement some time back, excluding Russia.

FIFA said in its report that ‘we have solidarity with those affected in Ukraine; we are complete with them. We hope the situation in Ukraine will improve soon and football will once again become a cause of peace and solidarity among the people.

Not only FIFA but also the European Football Union (UEFA) has banned Russia due to the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia. Russian football clubs have been banned from participating in every tournament and championship worldwide.

At the same time, Russian club Sports Moscow has also been thrown out of the European League. The Russian team has been banned from participating in almost all tournaments and championships worldwide.

Should Russian people be banned from broadcasting the World Cup?

Although FIFA has only banned the Russian team from participating in the Football World Cup, some believe that FIFA should ban Russian nationals for this World Cup. His point is that more than prohibiting the Russian football/soccer team is needed.

Russian citizens can enjoy a beautiful game like the Football World Cup on TV without enjoying it. The Russians are in their homes while their fellow Ukrainians destroy the houses. FIFA should not broadcast in Russia.
