In a letter to UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin, German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser has also requested the suspension of Russian and Belarusian officials from the football body, according to a report in Spiegel confirmed by the ministry’s spokesman. Europe’s football governing body has so far only banned Russia in the wake of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

But Faeser said that “not only Russia, which is waging war in violation of international law, but also Belarus, as a big supporter of the Russian leadership, should be banned from all international football matches and tournaments,” according to Spiegel. The sports world must “live up to its responsible role and take a united stand against this kind of disregard for human rights”, she added.

The call from Germany came as the clock ticks down on the qualifying draw for the tournament on October 9 in Frankfurt. Germany will be sole hosts of the 2024 finals, unlike the Euro 2020 finals – delayed a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic – when the championship was spread across the continent in 11 cities.

Ten German stadiums will host matches, including Berlin’s iconic Olympic Stadium and Munich’s Allianz Arena, home of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, which holds 66,000 for internationals. The Allianz Arena will be used for the second European Championship in a row after hosting three Euro 2020 group matches and a quarter-final.
