At that, all 20 Premier League clubs agreed at their meeting on Tuesday – according to BBC they needed only 15 minutes. The millions donation should go to the “Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC)” and benefit the people involved by the war in Ukraine. The English Association also satisfied its TV contract with Russia media reports. The FA Cup quarterfinal (19./20. March) will therefore not be transferred to Russia.
While Ligue 1 also interrupted its transfer in Russia, the Bundesliga chose another way. Last Thursday, the DFL had declared the continuing contract with the Russian station Match TV, “first to give up an extraordinary termination of the Treaty”, “so that the anti-war calls and peace bluff from the German stadiums continue to reach the Russian population.”
The prerequisite was “that Match TV sends the coming matchday and beyond the basic signal provided by the DFL – including Ukraine-related messages of league, players, clubs and fans”.
