READ | EFL withdraws broadcast access in Russia

8 March 2022

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent humanitarian crisis that is unfolding in the region, the EFL has suspended the broadcast feeds of its matches in the Russian Federation.

Access to the EFL’s iFollow service and other Club streaming services have also been withdrawn in the territory.

Echoing the views of the Premier League and other organisations around the world, the EFL remains deeply concerned by the ongoing conflict. As has been demonstrated at EFL grounds around the country, ‘Football Stands Together’ with the people of Ukraine and all those impacted.

The EFL is also supporting the British Red Cross’ Disaster Emergency Committee appeal and further donations can be made here:


Rotherham United outwardly displayed their support for the people of Ukraine at Saturday's Sky Bet League One game with MK Dons in a number of ways, including observing a pre-match tribute whilst our Community Sports Trust began a 'donation bank' to collect a number of key items ahead of the game.

You can read more about the Community Sports Trust's ongoing efforts, HERE.

We would also like to say another huge thank you to our colleagues from PA Entertainments, who have once again stepped in to light up AESSEAL New York Stadium, this time in the colours of the Ukrainian flag. As well as the header image of this article, we will be sharing a number of images as we continue to support those caught up in the conflict in Ukraine.
