In addition, a number of matches in European club tournaments involving matches in Russia will be moved.
This is especially true for Spartak Moscow’s upcoming match in the Europa League, writes the New York Times. The Russian national team will also, according to plan, host Poland for a World Cup qualifying match in Moscow on March 24. The International Football Association (Fifa) has yet to comment on what will happen with this match. It wrote NTB.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke of the upcoming football game when he spoke about the Ukraine case earlier this week.
– It is important that President Putin at this critical moment understands that what he is doing will be disastrous for Russia. He will end up with a poorer country as a result of the sanctions the world will impose. A more isolated Russia, which would have no chance of hosting a football event, he said.
Vegard Jansen Hagensports editor at TV 2, told Kampanje yesterday that moving the final was the only right thing to do.
– We regard such a move as the only correct one, due to the current situation. Sport also has a great responsibility to use its strongest tool available to show solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, said Jansen Hagen. This is TV 2 holding the Champions League rights in Norway.
Earlier today, it also became clear that the Norwegian winter athlete did not go to Russia to participate in the races there.
