 Russia plans to move from UEFA to the Asian Football Confederation

The Russian Football Union RFU is considering the transfer from UEFA to the Asian Football Confederation, according to Russian media.

The decision on the transfer of Russian football to Asia is planned to be agreed before December 31. As RFU vice-president Denis Solovyov explained, the haste of such a step is connected with the fact that he has time to file an application for withdrawal from UEFA, otherwise it can only be accepted for consideration in July 2024. If Russia notifies UEFA now, the issue will be considered within six months.

It is noted that the reason for such a step is the sanctions against Russia, due to which Russian clubs cannot currently participate in Eurocups, and national teams all ages can only play test matches.
