Euro 2020 thrown into chaos as host Russia face expulsion after anti-doping violations with Toyko Olympic ban on cards

The Sun Sports 3 weeks ago

RUSSIA face being banned from Euro 2020 due to alleged inconsistencies in anti-doping data.

The world’s largest nation are also at risk of being suspended from next summer’s Olympic games in Tokyo.

The Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia is set to host group stage games and a quarter-final

Russia are one of 12 host countries for next summer’s Euro 2020 tournament – which kicks off on March 21.

The Saint Petersburg Stadium will be used for three Group B matches and a quarter-final on July 3.

But the country’s anti-doping agency are expected to be declared non-compliant when the World Anti-Doping Agency’s executive committee meet on December 9 to discuss the issue.

The data in question comes from January 2012 to August 2015 and was obtained by WADA in January.

A statement released by WADA on Monday read: “The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) confirms that WADA’s independent Compliance Review Committee (CRC) met yesterday, 17 November, to consider a report from the Agency’s Intelligence and Investigations Department (I&I) and independent forensic experts and, accordingly, to discuss the ongoing compliance procedure brought against the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

‘In line with the process, the CRC will now bring a formal recommendation to the WADA executive committee (ExCo), under the chairmanship of WADA President Sir Craig Reedie whose term of office runs until December 31, 2019.

“The ExCo is scheduled to meet on 9 December to discuss the recommendation.”

If the executive agrees with the findings, Russia could be banned from participating in major sporting events and have hosting rights removed.

Should Russia appeal, the case would be taken to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
