Wales fans will still have to travel to St Petersburg if Ryan Giggs’ winning side draws Russia at Euro 2020 new reports have claimed. EURO 2020 Fans from all over the world can buy Wales Euro Cup Tickets online and enjoy its stunning performance.
Tuesday morning’s football headlines were dominated by claims co-hosts Russia could have Euro matches stripped away from them following the reference of a four-year events ban by investigators from the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Ryan Giggs side draw Russia
The shock news from overnight even put the FA of Wales on standby, with the possibility of Cardiff’s Principality Stadium replacing St Petersburg as one of UEFA Euro 2020 12 host cities for next summer’s finals.
But, fresh reports on Tuesday afternoon claim Russia will still be able to compete as Euro 2020 hosts, whatever the outcome of WADA’s penalty. The community who love their favorite team they are booking Russia Euro Cup Tickets.
The Press Association news agency said this is because the International Standard for Code Compliance by Signatories which sets out the rules on anti-doping breaches, does not define UEFA as a ‘Major Event Organisation’.
The definition states that Major Event Organisations are continental associations of National Olympic Committees and other international multi-sport organizations that function as the ruling body for any continental regional or other international events.
Because UEFA is only concerned with a single sport, PA says it is not covered. Russia does face being barred from the Olympic and Paralympic summer and winter Games of 2020 and 2022.
The code does cover single-sport world championships, so there will also be question marks over whether Russia can enter qualification for the 2022 football World Cup in Qatar. But it is being suggested they will escape any action over the Euros.
If that proves to be true, it means that if Wales are pitched into Pool B of the Euros this Saturday when the draw is made in Bucharest, they will face Russia in St Petersburg, co-hosts Denmark in Copenhagen and top seeds Belgium at one of those venues.
Welsh fans ready to roar on their team
That means some awkward travel for Welsh fans ready to roar on their team, who might suddenly have been hopeful of games closer to home instead. The alternative for Wales in Pool A, where they will play Italy in Rome and potentially have two matches in the Azerbaijan capital of Baku.
FA of Wales officials continue to closely monitor the Russia situation and are ready to offer the Principality Stadium as an alternative venue should UEFA Euro 2020 choose to get tough and interpret the rulings in a different way.
UEFA Euro 2020 has yet to say anything publicly on the matter, but a statement from FIFA, football’s world governing body, read We will await the final considerations of the WADA executive team on this matter until any potential solid decision is taken by FIFA.
